Another Bomb, Another Day


Hang your head in shame America,
for even if you can pretend
that your war was just,
and not just about oil,
you cannot hide from the fact
that you have ripped the heart
out of Iraq; and the blood
that soaks its cities’ streets
is shocking
even to your hardened heart.

It’s turned out far worse
than your coldest general’s
most clinical calculation.

It’s become another Vietnam;
and yet, still, your trigger finger
is pointing towards Iran.

You never learn, America:
you’re like a short-circuited
Asperger’s child –
you never bloody learn!
