Oulipost #21: Confabulation

A poem built with quotes from an article in today's Gulf Times:

My personal position does not reflect
the position of the Qatari government...

I do not take on an official position,
but just express my personal opinion.

What I said, and I say, is a matter of sincere advice,
which will prove its sincerity after a while.

I am part of Qatar,
Qatar is a part of me...

I am now 88 years old, and I will stay
in Qatar to be buried in its soil.

"I love all countries of the Gulf, says Qaradawi." Gulf Times. 21 Apr. 2014.
