Aftermath by Vera L. Eckert


Vera Eckert

A screen of sand as red as blood arose
To bar the army in advance to free
Iraq from olf regime that would oppose
Any thought of future liberty.
All thought was on the sand, the awful sand,
Aided by the one resolve to move ahead,
The soldiers never wavered from command
To fight and win for those so long misled.
Then people who remained safe and at rest
At home, now chose to gather, and to strike
For ending war, to form a great protest,
To march about, and show what fools are like.
Our soldiers, after staying through the blast,
Were handling out supplies and food next day
In effort to relieve the starving cast
On poor Iraqi people far away.
