Green on Blue

Green on Blue

‘Green on Blue’ sounds quite benign
Hints for decorating? Or interior design?

Alien to this currency is in the news -
Of more men dying in, ‘green on blues’
Killed by Afghans  -  without a chance
To save our leaders, as they dance
From Lie to fib and back to Lie
Is no good reason for any to die

What do they think lying in the Afghan sand
Why are we in this benighted land?
Fading into the arid dust
Do they wonder - as they must -
About all of those who’ve gone before
WTF was all that for?

Are you listening Dr Reid?
Who committed 3500 troops to Helmand with the infamous line:
They (the troops) will leave, “Without a single shot being fired.”

Such stupidity guaranteed his entry into the House of Lords.
Not for him grieving fathers, mothers,sisters, brothers.
Not for him grieving wives and children. 

£300 a day expenses and a seat with G4S as a ‘security consultant‘  - Who said satire was dead.
