Political Verse: Between Iraq And A Hard Place

by Dee Newman

By no means allow them to convince you
"Bad intelligence was responsible.”
The "facts" were fabricated and untrue.
They lied to us and we were gullible.
Do not be tricked again or persuaded
Into believing this preemptive war
Was necessary. They could have waited.
The so-called “threat” was not “imminent nor
Serious.” There were no Weapons of Mass
Destruction ever found. They fooled us all,
Including Collin Powell and the top Brass,
Intimidating us with fear and gall.
         Deceived with a purpose and a straight face
         We’re now stuck between Iraq and a hard place.
