2015 10 – What Is Sauce (poem)

WHAT IS SAUCE…

 

Did they ask at the border

can we come in

though it would lead to murder

the death of kith and kin

 

When asked if there was anything to

declare

and open your bags please

that started the glare

for they you don’t tease

 

The queue was growing longer

the tanks the ammo trucks

the khaki the general staff with war

to ponder

the accountants in charge of the

bucks

 

Overhead the aircraft were stacking

with bombs and missiles

eager to send a whole country

packing

but don’t push be patient awhile

 

We come in peace my friends

pest control whole governments

baited

the cure may be worse than the illness

but it mends

you may not agree but it’s fated

 

And fated it was

as millions hit the road

right into Fortress Europe’s jaws

into the gullets of nations, of no fixed

abode

 

Wilson John Haire.
