Sorry! This is more Poetic justice than poetry!

Saddam Hussein's New Years Eve Party cancellation notice

We, the undisclosed, regret to inform those who have been invited to Saddam Hussein's New Year's Eve party, that due to circumstances beyond our control dictacted by cirmstances which only became apparent in the last few days as a result of recent events, that we will have to cancel Saddam Hussein's New Years Eve Bash which was scheduled for next week.

Sorry to leave you all 'a dangling' and on the end of the line without any specific explanation as to the reason for the cancellation. It would seem he was not prepared to stick his neck out and to risk any problems with the neighbours with all the comotion and the noise and all the 'hoodies' that might gatecrash. It would also seem that the caterers were worried about getting paid too.

We are also informed that the band booking for "Trap door" (a four piece black soul band) fell through. Their feet have not touched the ground since they got a "big gig" today in Bagdhad. We think they have signed a record deal with a new record Label "Gallow records", who also signed the 'swinging Blue Jeans' and 'Huey Lewis and the Noose'. It would seem that they have accepted a more prominent gig on the same night.

We are sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused and we apologise for Saddam being such a boring stiff. We hope that you will inform everyone else at neck breaking speed so they are not put out or inconvenienced in anyway.

We regret that for some people the cancellation might be a bit of a choker and will put the dampers on the new year's festivities. For others it will probably be ok.

We did try to find another band to play at another venue, but unfortunately the band in Question, "The Gates of Hell" were snapped up at the last minute and will be busy for the coming days. I think they have been booked for some grand opening on a hot location in Australia I think, ...... well they said it was down under!

Sorry to leave everything up in the air until the last minute as everything fell through at such short notice. I am sure you can find somewhere else to hang out as Saddam did!

Saddam sends his apologies. He says that no one feels as let down as him!
He has fallen out with quite a few people over the matter!

Yours faithfully

Satire often touches upon crudity and offensiveness. This is no exception.
