Needlessly - Poem by NAYYAR SHABBIR AHMAD

Whether it be
In Iraq
to name, but - two theatres of war

Many good men have died needlessly


Whether it was on false assumptions
like getting rid of non existent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
or rushing into Afghanisxtan without a preplanned strategy of dealing with the Country

Ye Gods
Save us from meddlesome Politicians
and, know it all - stay far away at home - Generals

Spare these men where ever they may have come from
All are beloved to someone

Be he, Father, brother, husband - some other relation
or, mearly an acquaintence.
