Where I come from,

We are raised to take,

Power, and respect,

At any stake,

Sacirfice any loss,

I was taught to fight,

For what I want,

And when you get it,

You keep it,

At any cost.

For years my enemies,

Have gone to great lengths,

To destroy me,

Using men,

Women and children,

Even my own family,

To give themselves glory.

For thrirty years or more,

I've kept the peace,

Live your life,

But don't make enemies,

Out of your hate for me,

Everyday I feel now,

My enemies run free.

You attack, I attack,

If you hide,

I torture,

All because we want,

The same thing,

To keep our pride,

Now I'm the monster,

As you make,

Deals with killers,

You say you make war,

Then choose friends,

From blood spillers....

Where I come from,

People breed villians,

Starting with the,

Youngest of children,

They call out for peace,

Then send bombs,

Into building,

I've kept the evil,

scared in a corner,

Of my country,

Now you made me

Into a scape goat,

A show case monkey.

People with power,

Are selfish, I made my room,

Now what would you do,

If you was where I am from?

Would you hide in fear,

Or would you attack?

Signed........

The Ex-President of Iraq
