The Impact Of War
In a city west of Baghdad,
Where women can't be mad.
They all wear towels on their heads,
Men and Women sleep in different beds.
One night when the skies grew dark,
The U.S. bombs hit their mark.
Terror struck where terror breeds,
Innocent were killed over dirty deeds.
Deadly feuds, they say they halted,
But once again their actions faulted.
Trying to thwart off suicide bombers,
We're ending up with a world of Jeffery Dahmers.
Reporters asking Why, oh Why
Soldiers screaming Die, Die, Die!
Some were left injured, some were left dead,
It's not fun and games, just pain and dread.
Afghanistan, the land where this is taking place,
Is being turned into one big parking space.
Striving for peace, but only fighting more,
Is this the start of a third world war?
As our banner may wave,
They’re always digging one more grave.
To some its more than a game,
Now there’s a soldier with no name.
They may take your children and wife,
But they’ll always have your life.
