REVISED & RETITLED FORM OF IF THE TABLES HAD BEEN TURNED2
IRAQI FREEDOM GOAL!
Survivors of the Germany where Hitler’s henchmen reigned,
Would surely have more sympathy for those ruled by Hussein!
Instead of criticizing the “Iraqi Freedom” aim,
They’d realize that liberation is a noble claim.
Our men and women fighting there ‘gainst degradation’s rule
Are teaching many children what it means to go to school,
To have a goal of living, and their longings to fulfill!
Pursuing dreams of happiness, not thousands they might kill,
The common people soon perceived our troops mean only good,
To give them hope of living in a peaceful neighborhood,
Where fear and apprehension could be taken far away,
Instead of their “companions” every moment of the day
There’s really no comparison with Hitler’s vast blitzkrieg,
Determining to overthrow all Nations in The League,
It’s not the common people who resist our troops’ advance,
The war would soon be over if the people had a chance.
Our troops face opposition from the tyrants, for control
Of ev’ry thought and notion, lest the people reach their goal
Of self-determination, a respectful livelihood,
To stop the subjugation, and the wanton shedding blood!
Imposing western ways on lands of Japheth, Ham, and Shem
Is not the aim of those who dream of liberating them.
Devising ways to reach their goals; though Poet’s words repeat*
That “East and west shall never…” in the Bible’s God we’ll meet!
