Poems about war in general and US war on terrorism in particular.
|IT WILL BE AVENGED
[Those who break international law will be brought to book]
When doves are killed by swooping hawks;
When encroachers break up the locks;
When bombs rain on the simple folks;
Then it will be avenged.
The hawks, before the doves, will squeak;
Refuge, the encroachers will seek;
Their might will bow before the weak;
When it will be avenged.
That day is certain, though, yet far;
Culprits will be behind the bar;
The world will lose a superstar;
When it has been avenged.
