Poetry – Going to War – by John Phillips

I do like John’s poems (have a look at his book ‘Shorts and Shots’.

Going to war

 

We’re going to war, we’re going to war,

We’re going to war again.

Parliament has been recalled

And Cameron will explain.

We’re going to war, we’re going to war,

We’re going to fight the foe.

America’s President says we must,

So it’s off to war we go.

 

We’re going to war, we’re going to war,

We see the enemy’s game.

But nobody says who armed him,

Or even from where he came.

We’re going to war, were going to war,

The enemy’s plans to foil.

We’ll degrade his capabilities

And inflate the price of oil.

 

We’re going to war, we’re going to war,

Isil will be destroyed

If it takes too long we’ll change the law

And conscript the unemployed.

If it’s All in the National interest,

Will somebody please explain;

Why we knock them down just to build them up

And do it all again?

  1. Hysteria on full tilt, just like the Russiagate lies for 4 years. President Trump has withdrawn US troops stationed abroad. The 1st post WW2 President to hold direct face to face negotiations with the dictator of North Korea! Dude seriously ya need to wake up and stop dreaming.

    1. Yes he abandoned his allies to the Taliban and has been cosying up to dictators like Putin and Kim – while both of them develop their nuclear arsenals and treat him like a fool. Nice one.

      1. So your fine with a continuation of the Afghan war, a war fought since the Bush illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq! War monger. Cosying up to Putin – the same 4+ years of Russia gate lies. Dude you have no shame. Like you “know” what the leaders of N. America and N. Korea discussed. LOL who do ya think your fooling.

      2. I’m not fine with the Taliban – a bunch of neolithic vandals.
        I watch Kim building his nuclear capability unimpeded and laughing at Trump.

I'd like to hear from you...
