COULD WE HAVE DONE IT BETTER?

Could we have done it better?
Yes we bloody could:
We would have sent them first a letter,
Saying give up else we would,

DROP a bloody atom bomb
Upon every City Hall,
Without it killing even one
Of our fighting troops at all.

Could we send a clearer message?
No I don’t think that we could,
For it’s their choice to live in peace,
Or in a sea of their own blood.
