Peacelessness In Iraq - Poem by Margaret Kollmer

A somewhat squinty look at current affairs just prior to the Iraqi War:

Hans Blix und Boomps-a-Daisy
Bush fires are out of control…
Blix, Blair and Bush-a-Daisy
ZimBob should be on the dole
Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho….

Hans Blix und Boomps-a-Daisy
Areal’s flying again. So-ho
Hyangpyang and Whoops-a-Daisy
Saddam’s the name of the game.

'Peacelessness' I equate with 'War' - just another way of saying it, satirically!
