Must We Believe Everything They Tell Us

When this so called Coalition Of The Willing will have annexed Baghdad and Saddam will have finally met his fate
They may have parades for to honour their war heroes but will they have that much to celebrate?
Twenty five million people around the world in refugee camps
And add to that at least another three
And three million refugees for to get rid of every despot is a huge price to pay for so called liberty.

My sympathies are with the Iraqi people around them bombs exploding everywhere
In war there's only death and grief and suffering and any war it never has been fair
And those who create wars are sowing the seeds of their own karma and to karma we all have a price to pay
And it is true that we all reap what we sow and our past sins will catch up with us one day.

I fee so sad, confused and disappointed they say the last straw breaks the camel's back
The poor souls of Iraq enough have suffered and once again they are under attack
The world refugee camps overcrowded they are the people with nowhere to go
And they must flee to Lands where they will not be welcome and only disappointment they will know

My sympathy to them of little value for words are such an easy thing to say
The people of Iraq enough have suffered for Saddam's sins must they be made to pay?
And bombs exploding in Baghdad and Basra and terror follow the war sirens of the night
And must we believe everything they tell us like might will rule and might is always right?

He Had His Chance To Save A Condemned Woman

He had his chance to show mercy just a few short years ago
For to spare the life of a condemned woman who was waiting on death row
Yet he refused her a reprieve and mercy to her did not show
Don't tell me of George W Bush 'mate' of him I already know.

True enough she was a sinner and she deserved to die many might say
And that for a foul crime such as murder with your life you ought to pay
And George W Bush the then Governor of Texas with the many did agree
And when he had his chance to show mercy he sadly lacked in sympathy.

He could have saved her he chose not to he suffered from voter dread
And would not over rule the judge's decision 'may God have mercy on her soul' he said
Her friends begged of him to spare her he said no and shook his head
He appeased the hard line voters and left her to be judged by God instead.

He follows in his father's footsteps as President of the U.S.A.
And like his father did before him he goes to the church to pray,
George Bush senior too went to church after his war planes bombed Baghdad
And he swore Saddam was the bad bloke who is good and who is bad?

He had his chance for to save a condemned woman and he left the chance go by
He appeased the hard line voters and left that poor woman die
He said may God have mercy on her, his only words of sympathy
But God who was the last to judge her is far more merciful than he.

Conversion

Overcast expression on pale skin, black glazed eyes,
obliviously sat
upright against the side of an old, stone church.

His hanging cheeks
his navy-blue Puffa jacket, warped around him,
his fingerless gloves untwitching in his lap...

Humans click past,
resplendent
their bouncing bags held tight,
heading to Marks and Spencers or the Colosseum.

The church drowns in his skant breath,
a sinking, extinct volcano
of illusory aid.

Regretfully caught in careless eyes
he doesn’t evoke sympathy,
- sympathy requires effort -

he is no more than half of the image:
a tramp by a converted church.

The Cowardliest Of The Cowardly

Those who take hostages and behead them are the cowardliest of men
For their cause in this way sympathy they cannot hope to win
For themselves they sow the worst of foredoom if for their heinous crimes they do not pay
Then the bad karma they've sown for themselves will catch up with them one day.

They always wear balaclavas when they appear with their hostages on t v
For to hide from the World their facial identity
They lack in a sense of self worth and they lack in hope and faith
For to commit such crimes against humanity they must be consumed with hate.

I pity their unfortunate hostages who are innocent of any crime
Their hard luck to be in the wrong place and there at the wrong time
For days they agonize and they worry as to what might be their fate
Of the good condemned to suffer we hear so much of late.

They are the cowardliest of the cowardly of them is all that can be said
And their bodies only living the souls in them are dead
And though the evil in them was created by a war
They have taken fundimentalism that one step too far.

The cowardliest and the most callous of people just those and nothing more
But one day karma will catch up with them for to level up the score
Those who take life so cheaply cannot expect any sympathy
Since they commit the most heinous of crimes against humanity.
