RUSH TO WAR
America rushed 12 years long into war
Why not wait longer…? Only 12 years.
Ignore violations, UN Sanctions, Saddam.
America, why did you not wait more?
Proof of chemical agents, declassified,
Ignore the proof, give him more time.
Slap Saddam’s hand maybe he’ll comply;
‘Oil for food’ his country still starves.
Another chance we must give Hussein,
Regime reigns continued oppression.
Now we see the oppressed now free,
Yet still we should have given more time.
12 years long into war we have rushed,
While people tortured, some disappear.
Ignore the oppressed but do not rush,
Saddam kills more but not by our hands.
Into war a short twelve-year wait,
No shame for rushing, perhaps the wait.
Waiting while rushing to war a must,
America rushed waiting far too long.
