I hope noone minds if i post this here, i wrote it at the beginning of iraqi war (we all know its still a VERY dangerous place!) and i think it sums up my opinion of the current situation. sorry if its not appropriate but i thought id post it here where people might relate rather than store it away in the collaborative fiction corner where noone will read it

Final Reprieve

A final reprieve – granted to humanity,
A chance to realise that WE breed this insanity,
Whilst the candle of life continues burning,
This solitary world is endlessly turning,

Propagation of fear leads to pain and despair,
As our governments greed leaves a stale stench in the air,
Yet, as disgustingly trivial as the solution must be,
We blindly march on, unwilling to see.

A nation of puppets, strung up – in a noose,
Trapped, as if prisoners, we take the abuse,
If democracy reigns then why is it true,
That the opinions of many, are ignored by a few?

Our virtues left dangling, hanging by threads,
As we sit back, defeated by the propaganda we’re fed,
Whilst soldiers lay dying, there’s no real end in sight!
Is it really the fight for freedom, or the freedom to fight?

Thanx, shinobi
