Freedom of speach? ok... I hate Bush

A note book in one hand 
A pencil in the other 

I sit down and write
A poem about my brother.

He fights in a war that is so surreal
Why did Bush make an unjust deal?

Why is my brother in Iraq right now
Why did he make this crazy vow? 

He's not fighting to stop a war.
He's fighting for what Bush voted for.

Bush wanted to be the next president to start a war,
Bush got what he wanted what he voted for.

Now my brother is in Iraq 
Fighting a war 

Soon to meet his daughter that one day he will adore 

But for now we have to pray 
That my brother Chris will come back to stay. 

Love you and miss you Chris Matters

    I'm certainly in tune with the powerful message of this well-crafted poem. I can feel your angst and hope your brother makes his way home safely, Amber. The violence continues; no one is safe. God bless you for staying strong and having the courage to express your disgust with the political system in this manner. Love, Carolyn
