After almost seven years I am digging out a simple web page I made in the midst of the first days of the brutal U.S. war against the people of Iraq. Here is a link to the page war.theobjectofmy.org → and here is one of my poems from that page:

Statesmen at War

These statesmen
talk their shit
and ravage
down upon
the shuddering souls and
shaking bodies
of
children
and those who once were
children
to grind them
sinking
seeds of another future
into
the paths
of their gory.

These statesmen
talking their shit
are not able
to turn
their coarse barrels on
themselves blasting
and
release
the shuddering bodies and
shaking souls
of
the
children
from
this charred nightmare
turned day.
