When Children have to die

When Children have to die

A Poem by Baby Ricochet
"

Dedicated to Paul Wolfowitz, Danial Pearle, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheeney, Paul Bremer, Condalisa Rice, Colon Powell, George Bush and all the Neo conservatives who insisted it was a "Slam Dunk"

"


A beautiful child had to die
For the ugly war we fought
Politicians spinning lies
The little lives it cost

May bloody bands of roses
hang upon their heads
Painful thorns of annexation
For every child dead

A beautiful woman had to die
For the brutal war we fought
Hi tech smart atrocities
is what money wrought

May darkness fall upon them
Incompetent Architects of disaster
Rose colored tinted fantasies
Is what they were chasing after

They sent us into the valley
They had no f*****g clue
They set us up and used us
and then they lied to you

If there was any justice
They'd all be up on trial
Crimes against humanity
Prosecution of the vile

They got away with murder
Thousands of shallow graves
Thousands more in misery
Innocent lives they gave

Haunting cries of vengeance
of a generation tossed aside
Civilization's broken promise
When children have to die

This is a very well written piece that leaves absolutely no ambiguity as to how you feel on the subject, and you have conveyed your thoughts most deftly. I like the anger peppered throughout, it adds the flavor of realism to the piece only you, having lived it, can provide. Well done.

This is powerful and feels like a punch in the stomach, the fact that you can go from writing about vagina's to this is what shows your talent, great piece here!

And this is why I insist most journalists are either heartless or miserable to the marrow . . . I find it ironic because I find being a journalist appealing . . .
Nonetheless, that does not change the fact I find disgust surrounding this topic. No diction could ever justify massacres, whether optimistic or pessimistic or whatever. I find it suitable to state: They died; then press down the killer's reason.

Wow, this is probably one of the most intense writes that I have read from you, and I think the rhyme scheme and overall theme was done very effectively. I concur; it makes me f*****g sick when people --especially children-- are murdered for greed and control. Great job,dude--as usual :)
