Iraq Homecoming
by scott from jail

Iraq is a fog in the night,
shadow of the invisible, A
haunting of Zombies and the smile
Of inane tv shows, sponge Bob as hero
waiting for the crack in the last lie
To bring down the edifice of craziness
Waiting as if it were a bomb
beneath the president's chair
Selling to China, and the plates of souls
Limited by only their imagination
blown to bits
Beside the rubble,
a paid police force
waiting for protesters...
