Road To Nowhere Poem by Stanley Cooper


Iraq, the U.S. road to nowhere,
Leads to nothing good in sight
With arrogance, Bush drove us there
For his bloody pre-emptive fight

The war in Iraq, the Bush and Blair blunder
Has placed the world in this mess
Where next will they lead us, I fearfully wonder
On their belligerent war express

Honorable citizens are not in accord
With this senseless Iraqi fray
Humanity can no longer afford
His cowboy, “bring ‘em on” sway

Bush’s road to nowhere, Iraq, much like Vietnam
Is covered with too many dead
This trip into bloodshed, from inception was damned
And is stained with a devilish red
