Socialist Stanza No. 3

Mars Attack


Mars looks down from the heavens on

Yet another war set in train,

Fought face to face and by proxy

Across and for the Ukraine.


While presidents and their minions

Make claim against counter claim.

Though broadcasting their differences,

They are all really the same.


Not one of them prepares accounts

Of ordinary lives lost,

As long as their stock is rising,

It’s an acceptable cost.


The present main protagonist

Is, of course, evil or mad.

Such is the accusation made

By the bombers of Baghdad.
