War Mangled Manner


O' how can you see

If your lids are sewn shut?

How so proudly we failed

To read our Pre-si-dent's mean-ing

Whose intentions unclear

And a mind not quite there

Or the news that we saw

Was so gallantly seeming


But the clusters bombs fell!

Oil rivers would swell!

And the angels stood back

From this Christian-led hell


O'say did those children

Put up a - big - fight

When you top-pled their homes

On that cold dead-ly night.
