Iraqi Desert - Poem by Sandra Osborne

Seems like
We want a war
To maim and kill and fear.
Hatred
Is alive and well,
But the murders are not here.

So flash
The sandy TV screens
So bleak and all alone,
Greed
Must be alive and well,
With all our reason gone.

    I wonder where are we heading with all this wars...
    with the killing that continues in Iraq it will remain ruin and desert...by the time the war is over that how it looks like

    Talk to George W. about this, but in much harsher tones.
