so here's one from Dano, outside the US border
got my redcoat all packed and my musket's in order
seems gulf war two is the topic of choice
so i thought you might value a foreigner's voice
fresh from the land run by bushy-boy's bitch
the way this is going is makin my fists itch
"a means to an end" that's their wonderful notion
but this whole damn thing causing me mixed emotions.
civillian targets, taking the brunt
admittedly, cos Saddam, he was acting the cunt
his troops in urban areas, he's acting the coward
but leave em and the coalition get overpowered.
but why all the missiles? civillians get lost
didn't want urban combat? it was not worth the cost
looking at the attitude it seems to me
that it was "better it be one of you than one of my me"
but this you all know, no more gilding the lily
repetition of news is just a bit silly
besides, that'd make me no better than the media
can you sift through this all crap that they feed ya?
wagging the dog, it's a media circus
some more footage of women crying in burkhas
over the son they've lost, house that's gone, it's far too sadistic
"one death is a tragedy, a million's just a statistic"
so, here is some news from here in the UK
concerns an MP called George Galloway.
seems his name was discovered in iraqi dox
in a little ring file, in an old tatty box
in some half wrecked building in baghdad
i suspect that the news made ol' blair go quite mad
seems that this guy came into some cash
that was fresh from the box marked "saddam's secret stash"
negotiating the oil deals
fresh from the oilfields
the money for iraqi meals
was greasing the wheels
he allegedly made about $600g
(you can check out the story here, on the BBC)
15 cents on a barrel, that's what he got paid
seems dictators are fine if there's cash to be made
he says that the news is a ridiculous claim
or later he'll try to be shiftin' the blame
be it US or UK, from new york to dover,
politicians are the same the whole damn world over.
(rhyming couplets really, not quite a freestyle, but a few more goes, and i'll flow like the nile)
