Oh Peace, How Much Blood Has Been Shed In Your Name? - Poem by Brian James Caffrey
Terrorists! ! ! We cry, as we point the finger of blame...
9/11! ! ! We cry, it has left us dead and lame...
Iraq! ! ! We shout, is the country of our hate...
Vengeance! ! ! We shout, we’ll clean the slate...
War! ! ! We roar, it’s the only way for peace...
Blood shed! ! ! We roar, is the only solution to make them cease...
Innocence! ! ! We wonder, is but temporarily lost...
Infanticide! ! ! We wonder, is what peace costs...?
Murder? ? ? We ask, is this what we’ve come to...?
Poverty? ? ? We ask, do these people deserve what world they’ve been condemned to...?
Who are the real terrorists we so call?
Who kill and maim for no reason at all?
With Guantanamo in our hands,
We are the terrorists invading these foreign lands.
But justice will prevail, we hope,
These lives lost, their families will cope,
But the war rages on and do our hearts melt?
For we to fear that their vengeance will be felt!
