once upon a time



Iran, Iraq, Kosovo.
Once again the dogs of war are let loose
Bush, Blair, now
 We can add brown, and Obama.
Only names of the beast roaming free.
Saddam, Bin Laden, pol pot
Make-do pseudonyms' adopted by the beast.
We praise the dogs of war.
Clamour for more bodies on the highway:-
Hell in the cities, country devils on
The high roads, we pay his toll.
The beasts dogs roam freely hanging, murdering,
The beast loves us all.
Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Churchill, only
Pseudonyms the beast dogs adopt striding, his playground.
Although we the innocents call it home.
