The 'Right Honourable'


The 'Right Honourable'

In the month of March 2003
A man made a callous, harsh decree
To send our troops to a foreign land
It was such a deceitful sleight of hand
Who was this man that did not care
'The Right Honourable' Tony Blair

He made a shameful, sham deduction
That there were weapons of mass destruction
He said 'On my honour I truly swear'
'Saddam has weapons hidden there'
What man caused so much despair
'The Right Honourable' Tony Blair

Many lives were lost and much more maimed
Terrorist threats and Al-Qaeda blamed
The truth be known as we all know
It was not for this suggested foe
It was for a Yankee love affair
Bush and 'The Right Honourable' Tony Blair

How low he stooped to the USA
A consuming urge to be revered one day
No thoughts were given to who might die
Riding high on an immoral lie
His ego blazing like a flare
'The Right Honourable' Tony Blair

It's not Al-Qaeda that should be blamed
One man alone should stand ashamed
It was not for the British Union Jack
That those brave soldiers did not come back
Who lied when he said 'This war is fair'
'The Right Honourable' Tony Blair

So the heinous moral of this sad story
If you hunger wealth, power and glory
Forget your morals, agree to slaughter
Don't care who loses a son or daughter
And the man who caused too much pain to bear
'The Right Honourable' Tony Blair

The pain of loss is worse I fear
When it's just to glorify our callous 'Premier'
Those young lives were lost in vain
One man alone should bear the pain
Instead he became a millionaire?
'Aye sure yer honourable' Tony Blair

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
