23feb12 The Day After: Comparison Iraq


the earthquake
was terrible
now you understand
no water?

two three
years later
much of Iraq
had no water

Tony Blair said
no hurry...
Tony has water
why hurry...
Tony has water
why worry...

before Libya
shot own
citizens from jets
helicopters?

over 300 in Egypt
dead in
protests 300 so far
in other

Arab countries?
God’s children
are hurting and
yet you had no

comment? Why?

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
