The Siege And Destruction Of Ancient Al-Qiam

Just past 6 P.M. sundown
the end of another long chaotic day
in occupied Baghdad town

But now in the Northwest Iraqi occupation zone
a serious new war drama was about to unfold
the debut production Operation Steel Curtain

Charlie Company Last Mission

Six months in six months to go
an army discharge than homeward bound
retired a civilian see after the kiddies and Mrs.

gun shots ring out bullets clank and ping
off Hummer's reinforced armor plates

AmeriCo We Had Enough Of Being Conned Speaking Truth To Power

Obama your feet got to be held to the fire
cause the world is fed up with AmeriCo's wars and occupations

with scribbling stroking signature
sign seal deliver a document ending the conflicts
raging in the Mid and Near-east...
