FILE - In this Sunday, May 21, 2006 file photo, renowned Egyptian poet Ahmed Fouad Negm returns the greetings of a neighbor, outside his home in Cairo, Egypt. State media says Egypt’s best known satirical poet, Ahmed Fouad Negm, has died at 84, early on Tuesday. Known as the “poet of the people,” Negm’s use of colloquial Egyptian Arabic has endeared him to his countrymen. He shot to fame in the 1970s when his poetry, written in Egypt’s colloquial Arabic, was sung by blind musician Sheik Imam, allowing both to inspire generations of youth aspiring for change.
