According to a news report, Saddam hussein is gardening, and writing poetry while in prison.

The only info is that one of the poems is about Bush, but whether 41 or 43 is not clear

Hugh, I found Google quite resourceful, note the date of the first link:

From Les' Guardian news article:

"He is looking
after a few bushes and shrubs
and has even placed a circle
of white stones
around a small palm tree
His apparent care
for his surroundings is ironic
when you think he was responsible
for one of the biggest ecocides
when he drained the southern marshes."

said Mr Amin, a Kurd from Kirkuk, who is the first member of Iraq's new interim government to visit Saddam. "

Saddam should hire this guy to ghost-write for him !
