From ironclad order to unruly chaos in three short weeks;
War over, Iraq descends into darkness. Electricity gone
Water in short supply, garbage quickly fills the streets.
Huddled inside their dark and quiet homes
The fearful residents of Baghdad cling to one another
Hoping the murderous mobs will not break in.
The Americans stand idly by while looters reign,
Any object not embedded in concrete is swiftly taken.
Copper pipes, office chairs, tables, desks and lamps,
Heating systems, air compressors, generators,
Cars, cranes, tractors, tires - all are stripped or burned,
Hospitals are trashed and medical supplies stolen.
All this while the U.S. Army, 150,000 soldiers strong
Skirmishes with isolated Iraqi fighters
Hidden in the smoldering ruins of burned buildings.
An occasional hand grenade is thrown, shots fired,
The last whimpers of Saddamís guard. Even leaderless,
Without orders or compensation, they remain loyal.
In other cities across Iraq, itís the same story:
No water, no electricity, ruthless raging mobs.
Iraqi soldiers, civilians now in dress and manner,
Return home to their neighborhoods, out of work.
No prospects for tomorrow, Saddamís dinar worthless
The only currency that matters is the dollar.
Long-repressed ethnic factions recover their pride.
The Shiites demonstrate their strength of numbers,
Marching in the streets in support of their Imam.
Sunni Moslems retreat to their established ďtriangle;Ē
Fearing the potential alliance of the Shiites with Iran
Where Shiite fundamentalists are in complete control.
Expatriates return from across the globe,
Wannabe leaders and greedy businessmen eager for booty.
CIA-connected, approved by the U.S. military.
Political opportunists gleefully gather round Iraq,
Vultures pushing and vying for best position,
Iraq carrion for their picking.
The munitions trade show is a great success,
Widespread destruction all the proof required
To show the market value of new weapons.
High-tech wed to high explosive, a winning combination.
Computer records kept of every bomb, every mission,
Are a sales tool second to none.
