found poem

virtually all riches come from oil
it was in everyone’s interest
to safeguard oil fields, for NATO to keep close watch:
the country may well be sitting on a cash mountain.

the hotly contested area
deserted by its population
available for the taking.

after some confusion
the shrapnel came from the desert, passed right through
vehicles going backward and forward
I strongly regret the loss of life and
I am not apologizing.

to maximize the terror it is not possible
to make a mistake
with 20 tanks
advancing on a large patch
of desert land.

we shouted god is great and after that we heard nothing.

~ McK
