Better late than never
we anguished as what seemed like forever
to this day I still wonder
if switching to Iraq
stole our forward thunder.
It seemed THEN in Afghanistan
we should have kept with our original plan
with 9/11 we knew the score
in Afghanistan then
we FAVORED war.
W’s policy lost the focus
he thought he would find weapons with hocus~pocus
but thanks to the proud
within our armed forces
we kept digging ahead in both our courses
and now with a leader more intelligent
they finally fullfilled the task of which they were originally sent
I am very glad that we nailed Osama
under the direction of President Obama.
The question is what do we do now
dealing with the taliban somehow
this war on terror has a long way to go
despite cutting down its star of the show.
I know this whole affair is no celebration
for many within our American nation
our government many people no longer trust
they see this as another killing in disgust
for the 9/11 families this a dot of relief
having taken out the one who masterminded their grief.
The best we can do
is keep hoping for peace
so that maybe some day
the terror will cease.
Thank you to all our armed forces for your service in all of this since 9/11.
I am glad that if this had to be done, that it wasn’t a bombing that would have
wiped out all those children, and others, in that compound, with him.
