Helmand


In Helmand
It’s hell man
With the Taliban
In Helmand

Helmand
It’s hell-manned
Not well-manned
With the ANA

ANA
Afghan National Army
By the Taliban
Driven barmy

ANA
All Nations Alert!
Taliban with Al-Queda
No starter!

100 British soldiers
Killed, man
In Afghanistan
This year, man

This hell, man,
Is killing our men, man
Where is our exit plan?
Our way out of Helmand?
