In Iraq - Poem by Francis Duggan

In Iraq people seriously injured and die in terrorist attacks every day
And innocent people the ultimate price made to pay
For foreign invasion that brought about regime change
Some people in their actions to say the least strange
In their ordering of the invasion of Iraq the leaders of the coalition of the willing boast of success
But they have left this poor Country in a horrible mess
The coalition of the willing have left and they will not be coming back
To where they introduced bloodshed through terrorism to the Country know as Iraq
In terrorists attacks in Iraq thousands seriously injured and thousands are dead
They did not introduce peace and prosperity to Iraq only terrorism instead
Of a better and safer life for it's people in the years ahead
No wisdom amongst war men in truth can be said.
