Ahmad Matar's poem against the House of Saud

Ahmad Matar is a very popular kind-of-underground poet who uses the style of Nizar Qabbani to comment on Arab political matters.  I don't appreciate his poetry and it could be because I am purist in Arabic poetry.  I find his style to be too easy and too unsophisticated and intended for mass audience with little attention to beauty.
