Criminals of War

Every weekday on the Daily Poet, the day's news in poetry form.

In the land
of the proxy wars

the forces of Assad
have taken the town of Qusair

As Russia and America
and Iran and Saudi Arabia

all sit back and watch
and cheer their for their side to win

Men of power
give not a single shit for people

that are killed or injured
so long as their interests are met

The real criminals of war
sit in Moscow, Washington, Tehran, and Riyadh
