Theme: War

Civil War

They seek him here, they seek him there
he is tall and thin and sports a mustache,
you can call him lanky and his wife slim.
Over Damascus in his posh neighbourhood  
drones fly looking for him, but they must
be sure and not hit a foreign embassy.

He has been pitiless, used chemical weapon,
not depleted uranium, Agent Orange or
liquid phosphorous, but something worse,
he must be punished. When found he will,
for the good of democracy, be assassinated,
together with his wife, children and chattel.
The rebels can take over – there are so many
of them - they will fight and kill each other in
the name of religion and for power, the sweet
taste of command.  Stuck in the middle of this
mayhem are the Christians, they better leave
now; because you ain't seen nothing yet.

Assessment of the terrible situation in Syria. Excellent last stanza
