Stanley Cooper

(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

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
