The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Can we get Rid of the UN?
Can we get Rid of the UN?
Are we all just indentured slaves to the United Nations?
With chains around our necks as we obey their expectations,
Can we even influence their International Criminal Court?
And send these do-gooders home to their own sanctimonious sort.
Itís a simple demolition task - just tear their building down,
And push it into the Hudson and flatten all around,
And tell them itís done - all their strutting self-righteous speeches,
They can go back where they came from and lie on the beaches.
Should we care if one group of religious fanatics far away?
Beat the crap out of another group because they want to play?
Armies have gone to Afghanistan for at least ten thousand years,
And nothing has ever changed there - bags of bodies and tears.
And now I hear this UN group want to control the Internet,
Information coming and going so they can interject,
Where we will have to ask permission just to put in a post,
With their propaganda and version of events uppermost?
