Quixotic Iraq Policy

                                                                   The world will not back an Iraq attack

                                                                   Or support us in our aggression,

                                                                   But Rummy and Cheney

                                                                   And the Israel-first crowd

                                                                   Hang onto their vicious obsession.


                                                                   They say we’re endangered by Saddam Hussein,

                                                                   But nobody swallows that line,

                                                                   While they seek an Iraq

                                                                   That will give up its oil

                                                                   And back us on Palestine.


                                                                   David Martin
