The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Canadian UN peacekeepers

Canadian UN peacekeepers

by

James Bredin


What Canadian interests can be served by putting soldiers in harms way?
For nothing more than pushing UN policies somewhere way over there?
To stop some screaming tribal types from killing one another?
Buy bragging rights at the UN by pretending to be a big brother.

But in Rwanda they killed a million people in front of our peacekeeper,
And thanks to the UN our peacekeeper was unable to stop that grim reaper,
But Ottawa politicians and reality are always distant and far apart,
And our few soldiers wait for their bosses at the UN to tell them to depart.
