WMD theory developed behind closed doors was a poor excuse to attack Iraq
CLOSED DOOR THEORIES



When we think that we know all
And keep closed the mind’s door,
Ignorant and arrogant
We would then become sure.

Little knowledge is truly
A thing quite dangerous.
It leads, without forethought, to
Actions precipitous.

US in its arrogance
Started the Iraq war,
Which has caused heavy loss of
Money and men so far.

Behind closed doors it made up
WMD theory,
For concocting which, never,
George Bush has felt sorry.

It is said, pride hath a fall.
US, too, can’t escape.
It’s going to find itself
Ere long in a bad shape.
