the Iraq war is like a home invasion – version 2 :

April 2, 2007

I killed
your mother
and father

your home
soiled your garden
tortured your brother
raped your sister

it was all done
for my good

you are a stage
from which
I take leave

    quite a stirring poem!

    bullish1974 – I am glad it stirred your mind and blood. What are your thoughts on immediate U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq?

  3. qazse Says:

    for those who think this poem unfair – please remember how U.S. forces have committed torture, rape, and murder. Sure it was a small amount statistically but the impact upon the collective psyche of Iran was significant and adverse. Those pictures are hard to erase.
