New American Century

 
 
 
After Shock and Awe,
extreme conflict booms – a
“transitional time of untidiness”.
 
We bombed in Baghdad.
Cast crusade banner blame
as if to clean up this mess.
 
Common folk, forced collateral,
pay braggarts’ debts of hubris
compounded and raised.
 
Drunk on destruction to fell
inclusive truths of good faith,
triumph of the crazed.
