War Story

And in the end, there’s nothing much to say about a true war story except maybe “Oh”.
So we have been war steadily since 1950.
Now the question is who’s gonna win it.
Who’ll be going to heaven while the rest of us go to blazes?
Who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt?
You listen to your wife’s breathing.
The war is over.
They believe the propaganda.
The war is over.
They believe the media.
The war is over.
They don’t know where Iraq is.
The war is over.
This is a dangerous country.
The war is over.
You close your eyes.
Now you’re quiet as can be.
Wind blows.
