War, Good God, what is it good for... absolutley nuthin!

Watched a film today
documentary, on the news it was
‘bout 9/11 and the so-called ’War on Terror’

Showed a US Marine with his mates,
comrades in arms, some say;
playing football, American that is

Laughing and joking, one day
Another day, BOOM, IED,
shrapnel in the, soon he’s dead

War, Good God, what is it good for…

Money, money, its a politician’s world,
money makes the wars go round
Hatred is the corporate game

War, Good God, what is it good for…

Not for you, not for me,
Not for the children without fathers,
Brothers without limbs, mothers without sons

War, Good God, what is it good for…

Not for the Muslim, Christian or Jew,
Not for Israeli, not for Palestinian,
Nor for anyone who loves their life

War, Good God, what is it good for… absolutely nuthin good, that’s what!

War, Good God, what is it good for... absolutley nuthin!

Artist's Description

Saw a documentary on the war in Iraq on Newsnight (BBC TV) tonight. On the theme of what comes after the ‘War on Terror’. In t, the US Marines spoke of their anger at fighting a useless war, at being apart from their families, of friends they had lost, of how this was their third tour and how it all seemed so pointless. One spoke of how it was costing up to $12 BILLION a month! No wonder the US economy is in a nose-dive.
