National pride

my country right or wrong
May sound good in a song
But what did the stars and stripes
And our own union jack
Mean to thousands slaughtered
In the shock-awe attack
And to hundreds still dying
Every week in Iraq
The concept I think you’l agree
Of exporting graveyard democracy
That most of us do find it strange
That in the hospitals and mortuaries
Lie the fruits of regime change
