SOMETHING TO GO WITH YOUR COFFEE

The burned, mutilated corpses of two Blackwater contractors hang from a bridge outside Fallujah while Iraqi civilians celebrate.
The burned, mutilated corpses of two Blackwater contractors hang from a bridge outside Fallujah while Iraqi civilians celebrate.
Charred corpses assaulting the news
a shock and awe we cannot refuse;
regardless of whether we like it or not,
there it is, as we reach for the pot.

“How could they show such disgusting pics?
Oh god, I think that I’m going to be sick!”
GOOD MORNING! WELCOME TO WAR!
our sacrificed heroes reporting the score.

Just look at each grinning Cheshire face
showing us all what their hearts embrace
Those cowards, mutilating bodies dead,
merely sanctify our heroes instead.

God owns our souls, we must not deny,
and those of our heroes hanging on high…
trophies to the ignorant laughing below
unaware they’ll regret the seeds they sow!

May they seek forgiveness for what they’ve done
lest their souls be condemned by the Holy One
and be doomed eternally to suffer the knell,
“GOOD MORNING! WELCOME TO HELL!”
