Mr. Obama Its Your War Now

Mr. Obama Its Your War Now

A Poem by riskrapper
"

end the war now

"

















Refrain:

Oh Mr. Obama its your war now

war profits are up and so is the Dow

we've carried the gun and dropped the plough

these wars must end so end them now


Osama bin Laden hit us hard

he knocked down our buildings

in a murderous barrage

then President Bushie

atop a rubble heap

vowed to kill Osama

bury em for keeps


Refrain:

Oh Mr. Obama its your war now

war profits are up and so is the Dow

we've carried the gun and dropped the plough

these wars must end so end them now


W and Dickie invaded Afghan

soon thereafter disposed of Saddam

seven years later casualties swell

these wars are nightmares a living hell


Bombs destroy civilian homes

missiles strike by killer drones

collateral damage a cardinal sin

hearts and minds we'll never win


Oh Mr. Obama

this is your war now

we don't care who started it

it don't matter no how


sign the peace papers

make the hard call

bring the troops home

before one more falls


to build our country

we need global friends

fightin for oil

is war without end


You must think it over

give it some thought

the lives you ended

the horror wrought


Refrain:

Oh Mr. Obama its your war now

war profits are up and so is the Dow

we've carried the gun and dropped the plough

these wars must end so end them now


Our country needs fixin

there's much to do

jobs, health n schoolin

and homeless vets too


you got a Nobel

a prize for peace

you said war was hell

is too hard to cease


to continue the course

to bomb and bash

hate grows against us

we risk a great crash


a hope we can believe in

you would oft say

you win election

we don't change our ways


these wars are pointless

don't make no sense

bring the troops home

let the war machine rest



Refrain:

Oh Mr. Obama its your war now

war profits are up and so is the Dow

we've carried the gun and dropped the plough

these wars must end so end them now


Afghans are dying

they take up arms

to kill young Yanks

and do us harm


so think of moms,

lovers and friends

of young dead soldiers

we'll never hold again


how are you sleeping?

do you toss and turn?

do the faces of dead ones

make your conscience burn?


So Mr. Obama

just bring them home now

the Good Lord will bless you

beat swords into ploughs


Refrain:

Oh Mr. Obama its your war now

war profits are up and so is the Dow

we've carried the gun and dropped the plough

these wars must end so end them now
