Should We Have Attacked Iraq? - Poem by Nadalia Bagratuni

I'll tell you once,
And I'll tell you again,
We mean business this time,
No matter what has been said.

In 1991 we drew a letter in the sand,
Since then you have thumbed your nose,
At our command.

Now, with the terrorist threats,
You have created,
A great amount of fear,
Has come over us this year.

Some say wait,
I say no,
Some say maybe,
I say no.

We can waiver, fear, or fail,
America the land of the free,
Is in immediate peril.

Look at this as boxing match.
Do wait until we get punched
Before we land the knockout punch.

This rule of law,
May have served us in the past,
But its time has come,
And we must last.

Look into the future,
You too can see,
The best thing for us,
Would be to remain free and brave.

This can be accomplished with a simple task,
Get rid of Saddam at last.

The time for talk is over and out,
Now, is the time for no doubt,
Now, is the time for the leaders to shout.

Over the land,
There is large roar,
In numbers that can no longer be ignored.

Look deeply into the future and you will find,
What has made this country great,
When push came to shove we do not hesitate.

The trouble is now, look who is pushing and who is shoving
Is this what we wanted
Or is this just our new fate?
Please wake up please before it is too late!
