Poetry: Iraq 2003

Written in 2003. Dedicated to the Iraqi people—their resilience and endurance—with apologies from those of us who fought like hell against this illegal unjust war; to everyone that lost their lives; and to the soldiers on all sides forced to swallow this farce. Fuck George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld & all the other war-mongering neocon orchestrators that started this entire ugly spiral—you bastards own it and should be prosecuted for war crimes. All the blood is on your hands.

The innocence of life
The brutality of violence
Culminating to a precipitous strife
Acts that epitomizes abhorrence

Barbaric exploits of murder
A war of useless destruction
The despicable and worthless slaughter
Discontinuing the advantageous production

The battered and brutalized nation
The hungry and innocent lot
Is filled with condemnation
And relevantly distraught

The defiance of a small coalition
The outrage of many a nation
The arrogance of this administration
Has indeed garnered provocation

Whether it be campaign or war
I agree certainly not
It’s the violence I abhor
And left our country with a disastrous blot.
