The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Jamie Murphy
Armies passed through Afghanistan since Alexander the Great,
And nothing much has changed there though politicians still debate,
Nothing can be won there except bitter grief and misery,
Itís all part of the political-Liberal-UN love-in history.
Taliban suicide guy killed Jamie Murphy over there,
Because of that Liberal-UN Afghanistan affair,
These pompous pious politicians so proud and so pleased,
Put the fate of Jamie Murphy in a cheap jeep deceased.
The Liberal-UN love-in is harmless if no one dies,
But the stories out of Afghanistan turns all this to lies,
They will deny -- it wasnít the Liberals in those cheap jeeps,
It wasnít members of the UN assembly who will weep?
