The War That Doesn't Exist

November 28, 2012

Bush to the left of them

Blair to the right

Into the valley of death

 

Drove the 5,000

In a great cloud of dust

Into the jaws of Hell

 

“There’s not to reason

Or ask of them why

There’s is to do and to die”

 

After all that has gone

There’s no turning back

For a Suicidal Cavalry Attack

 

Who wants to be the last one to die?

In a war that already is lost

Who wants to be the last one to die?

In a war that doesn’t exist

 

Two steps forward

Then three steps back

For a line that was drawn on a map

 

“Into the valley

Of the shadow of death”

The loved ones who’ll never come back

 

Where are they now?

The posters that read

“This country ….is at war”

 

Lost in a conflict

That history will judge

A Suicidal Cavalry Attack

 

Who wants to be the last one to die?

In a war that already is lost

Who wants to be the last one to die?

In a war that doesnt exist

 

Death still rains down

On the villages and towns

Civilians burned in their homes

 

They’ll take you away

If you stand up and say

The names of the “Glorious Dead”

 

Those that come back

Shoot themselves in the head

With the trauma of what they have seen

 

What does it take

To call them all back from this

Suicidal Cavalry Attack
