FALLUJAH

A bomb on the roadside
… five soldiers have died
In the air… an evil scent
telling of a deed hell-bent

An ambush and a flaming car…
four civilians caught in an ugly war
a trembling fear deep within…
just being foreign was their sin

Charred remains hung on the bridge irons
… a practiced lesson of hate… taught for eons
This… a dark deed of a brainwashed nation
… whose perpetrators fear not… damnation…
