Legacy of the Gulf War

(with apologies to Douglas Stewart)

Sigh, wind in the dunes
Mothers, weep as you go
For uranium munitions were used here
Not that awfully long ago.

In the streets and market places
The debris has been swept clean
But the atoms of uranium keep poisoning:
These can not be seen.

The women still wail in Fallujah
Death of deformed children is slow
For those terrible weapons were used here:
The grief started years ago.

Sigh, wind in the dunes
For vile acts that we deplore
Mutations will serve to remind us all
For four hundred years or more.
