Death and Poetry


Zardasht Osman, an Iraqi college student who recently wrote a satirical poem decrying Iraq's ruling party led by President Massoud Barzani, was abducted. His body was found handcuffed on a roadside four days later, after he had been shot to death.

This is just sad.

Poetry has caused revolution, i hope Osman's death sparks a revolution too. RIP.
