War Fever (poem)

By Jan Barry

[Printer-Friendly Version]

Where's the vaccine
For war fever—
Addiction to bombing people
And places is so ingrained,
So many Americans can't abide
The end of war—
Don't leave Afghanistan!
It's the perfect forever war—
"This war will last 100 years!"
A Marine general roared
Two decades ago—
That didn't impress tribesmen
Who've been warring
With all comers
For hundreds of years

—Jan Barry
