My Lai Village, Vietnam 1968 - Poem by Kevin Condron

My Lai village, Vietnam
Visited by Uncle Sam
In the name of peace they said
But shots rang out and all lay dead

Women, children on the ground
Troops used nearly every round
Hundreds killed, then some asked why
So many people had to die

It made the news and some were sad
Patriotic folk were glad
No-one guilty and no blame
Selective rules to play this game
