Wartime Affair - Poem by James Bredin
Why should we feel we have a moral obligation over there?
Why are we not allowed any input in this NATO affair?
Some countries have binding referendums but we’re not allowed,
We are submissive, told what to think but we still have to feel proud.
As we stare at the lines of coffins on the Highway of Heroes,
We seem heartbroken and coming up with a lot of zeros,
Death in faraway places that are difficult to pronounce,
Which none of our political leaders will stand up and renounce.
This is a reason why we should have binding referendums,
And finally give our politicians some utter ultimatums,
Let them know that we are not numbers on some foreign battlefield,
Or just zombies watching TV sitting on a chesterfield.
