I who have nothing

Tunisia’s deposed Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and Egypt’s ex-president Hosni Mubarak recently had their fortunes, which were reportedly amassed over the long years of their authoritarian rule, frozen. The kind of assets they had stands in stark contrast with the abject poverty of many of their respective countries’ underclass.

The present situation of these disliked leaders gives a new meaning to this song. Additionally, this may well be their swan song.
