A Poem For George Bush (Free verse) by Edna Sweetlove
Dedicated to Mr G.W.Bush
c/o The White House
A few words to thank you for invading our land:
Thank you for getting rid of that Saddam Hussein
(So sad you found none of the weapons you sold him)
Thank you for killing off thousands of our women
And maiming thousand upon countless thousand more
With your illegal chemical weapons and bombs.
We loved our recent democratic elections
Even more than the corrupt interim regime
Set up to supervise all the devastation
Caused by your nice marauding psychopathic troops.
And we know it's nothing at all to do with oil
Or diverting attention from domestic problems.
Now that summer is a coming in we're so pleased
That the electric supplies are working so well
So we can enjoy nice luke-warm coca cola
As we swelter underneath the warm desert sun.
But we are so pleased the US army bases
Have their air conditioning in tip-top order.
So eagerly are we all now looking forward
To the thrilling civil war due to start quite soon;
You see, it will be an exciting four-way fight:
Sunnis vs. Shias vs. Kurds vs. the invaders.
Except you'll find some excuse to pull out
Just in time before the body count gets too high.
We also want to thank your British lapdog, Blair,
And do console him that he will be out on his neck,
Reputation ruined, thanks to his warlike stance.
But every cloud has its silver lining, so reflect:
America stands loathed worldwide, even by its friends,
As your hegemony draws to its inevitable end.
(On behalf of the bloodstained Iraqi people)
