Mussolini the Meanie

Cody Surface 2008 (Cary, NC)

May 22 

There was a man who was teeny
Some would say he was a meanie
Benito Mussolini
Il leader d’italia
Nato mille­otto­cent­ottanta­tré (born 1883)
Colligio severo don't get it confused though
2 murders by 16 then teaches the teens
A socialist journalist he became, inciting violence that was seen.
Why must he always be so mean?
Spent 6 months in jail
Made all the prisoners hail
Fought for his country in World War I to no avail.
Fasci Italiani di Combattimento full of arma
He did not yet meet his karma
What would he tell his mama?
Tried to run for the election
Lost and tried overthrow the government, good thing they had protection
It looks like he needs some self-reflection
King Emmanuel dissolved the government
To Mussolini the power of Italy fell just as he covenant
Not everyone was lovin it.
Assassination is attempted
Mussolini remained ambivalent
So his rule was prominent.
He joins forces with Hitler
Who is littler?
Sending many Jews to the hospitaller.
War with Europe begins
You don’t want to know how it trends
Mussollini meets his ends.(28 April 1945)
