The Night Before Voting

'Twas the night before voting, and all through Iraq
Folks wonder if voting will get them attacked
Why they are voting and for whom they're don't know
Many don't even know where they should go

The bombs are all placed by the boxes with care
In hopes that some voters soon will be there
Curfews and GI's with guns let them know
This talk of democracy is really all show

The freedom to cower, the freedom to die
Those are the freedoms that came from Bush lies
From Baghdad to Mosul, Ramadi Tikrit
Nowhere's less safe than an Iraqi street

Allawi, Zarqawi, Sistani, al-Sadr
The Iraqi inferno will keep getting hotter
Until the poor soldiers of the men who deceive
Give up the lie, and get up and leave.

(This is a sequel to The Night Before Baghdad, which I first wrote about 2 1/2 years ago and updated a few times.)
