WAR

Such a tiny little word is
War

Sounds the same said backwards
Raw

Inflicted upon the innocent and
Poor

Leaves the middle classes feeling
Sore

When the stock market hits the
Floor

And the price of oil can rise no
More

And the TV networks sanitise the
Gore

So the unthinking find death a
Bore

While Tony Blair, George Bush’s
Whore

Finds no use for democracy and shows it the
Door

Leaving violence in place of the rule of
Law

Such a tiny little word is
War
