At The Start Of The War In Iraq - Poem by Margaret Kollmer

Now Idi Amin was Big Daddy
And Saddam Hussein Bagh Daddy
Both Daddies are baddies
But another bad laddie
Is Bad Daddy’s laddie Bush-Daddy! !

I can’t write a Limmie with flair
And when watching TV I just stare
So much shock and awe
This terrible war
Has left my life’s fun-cupboard bare.

The cream of our youth and Bush picked ‘em
Your son or mine – one more victim?
Our hearts sigh in sorrow
For after tomorrow
There’ll still be no change in his dictum.
