A Poem to the Iraqi Children

From an American Child To the Children of Iraq
Natasha H. (age 11)

I'm sorry that my government doesn't see
That Iraqi children have the right to be.

Although children here and there deserve to live,
War and death is all my country wants to give.

Like you, I am a child with much to grow;
So many things to see, feel, hear, do and know.

If my generation was allowed to speak,
We'd call war and destruction acts of a freak.

If kids ran the world, peace would beat out greed.
Making it a kinder place in thought and deed.

We are stuck with the guy that was selected.
For good or bad, your leader was elected.

Power is something we need to use wisely
Not bombing children where oil is likely.

Only a psycho would presume to strike first
An oil-hungry madman crazed with blood-thirst.

Threatening nukes is making light of the worst
Ending our world with a nuclear burst.

My country's leaders got a chance to grow up.
How selfish can they be to blow it all up!
