On The Treatment Of David Hicks - Poem by Francis Duggan

Tis true by our silence with his lot we agree
But going on six years incarcerated without trial does seem all wrong to me
That the Australian Government has not spoken on his behalf shows how weak they must be
They have allowed others to rob him of his humanity
Captured in Afghanistan in a war zone
His actions i cannot condemn or condone
But to fight for his beliefs ought to be his right
Against those that he choose to take up arms to fight
David Hicks is not to be tried for murder since he did not kill anyone
By a military tribunal but if his side had won
He would be seen by those he fought for as a hero today
The winners write the war history it does seem that way
An inmate of Camp Delta with many others as well
Who for their beliefs are in their Earthly Hell.
