The falsehood invented by Bush to attack Iraq
IRAQ WAR: a limerick


President Bush, too cunning was he.
He told Iraq “You’ve WMD”.
For this he blamed Saddam,
Though he denied he’d them,
And launched a bombing spree.


• Llimerick: a 5-line light or humorous poem written in aabba rhyme. (Classically, the meter is supposed to be anapestic. Lines 1, 2, and 5 have 3 feet and lines 3 and 4 have 2 feet each).
