Looking Backwards Sideways



 



The Politician sanctions war:



Would he be quite so willing



If he had to lead the ones



He expects to do his killing.



 



Would he be quite so willing



With bullets flying at his head



Facing the realisation he could



Be of the wounded or dead.



 



Would he be quite so willing



When faced with the fact



Hindsight may judge him



Guilty of an illegal act.



 



Would he be more prepared



To take that one step more



Before taking that decision



To send his country to war.



 



It’s so very much easier 



To be ready and willing



To send your country to war



When others do your killing
