Poetry

Iraq

Out beyond the fields of wrath
Fallen men have paved a path

Senseless battle fought and lost
Showbiz victory at great cost

Dragging in dirt and dust
Winning the war's all they must

Weapons of mass destruction
Aimed at for our distraction

Under the guise of rescue
Sweet freedom, they argue

And serving those who're in need
Helping themselves first indeed

In their march towards Baghdad
Bombs and bullets were what they had

All they were interested in
Was how to destroy and ruin

And build upon it a new empire
Replace a tyrant with a vampire

Iraq remains in turmoil
Who cares, the Hawks have their oil
