Rookie - 20 Points (August 4th,1926 / New York City)

A Bush-el Of Lies


George W Bush must bare the blame
For his disingenuous warring game
This macho cowboy, with no remorse
Insanely shouts, “Let’s stay the course”

It’s his course of grand deception
Of his pre-emptive war, the world takes exception
No weapons of mass destruction were found
With truth he has no common ground

Too many sons and daughters die
Too many mothers mournfully cry
“Let’s stay the course”, his slogan offending
It’s his course, his war, his war with no ending

Policing the world, Bush does with conceit
His vanity will surely bring on defeat
By now he should know he’s on the wrong track
Western democracy won’t take hold in Iraq

    So much tragic truth here. Bush has started an eternal war, and drained the US coffers because of this. Now it cost more to rebuild Iraq. Great write and title! (Report) Reply

    I really like this title. It says it all. Very clever of you. How did you manage to keep your poem so short? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
