Comment on this article

by Sharmagne Leland-St. John

Peace is the goal the peacemakers say
As they taint with their hatred the U.S of A
There's no use denying
The eagle is dying
Our grandchildren will suffer for the debt you can't pay

Like Hitler you hold them at Guantanamo Bay
"They're suspected of being al-Qaeda" is all you would say
"What if they're Taliban, or by God something worse?"
Will this country survive your treacherous curse
With the blood of the innocents, is this how you'll pay?

You've pillaged and ruined in your inimitable way
Destroyed many a village, returned them to clay
You've murdered and maimed
For peace as you've claimed
Our grandchildren will suffer for what you have done here today!
