Legal Warfare

LEGAL WARFARE



Lawyers love a legal war

Though never hold a gun

But war is an ignoble whore

Exposing every human flaw

Warmongers? Never seen one poor

Such profitable fun.




It’s just a game the Generals play

No game is truly odder

You can’t have peace, not every day

Not with Warfare in the way

The Top Brass justify their pay

Commanding cannon-fodder.




The enemy was at your front

You looked him in the eye

But General Fud’s a cunning stunt

Who lets his soldiers take the brunt

Of every underhanded dunt

From tossers up on high.




Your back is naked soldier boy

You’re losing loads of blood

The knife that stabbed you: just a ploy

The press cannot conceal their joy

You shot the bastard, don’t be coy

Hoorah for General Fud!




Let’s keep the fighting nice and clean

All playing by the rules

We cannot broadcast such a scene

Our soldiers killing for the Queen

With reckless shows of rage and spleen

The mad impetuous fools.




The higher-ups are hypocrites

Their disingenuous words

Are truly getting on my tits

They tell us lies and think us twits

Mendacious narrative that fits

The polishing of turds.




They give themselves such pompous airs

Our enemies are bound

To find our morals better theirs

It’s murder, so the General swears

They’d fight for you, but no one dares

Tread this immoral ground.




Your story has a rancid smell

Hypocrisy and scheming

So as you fester in your cell

Remember all your friends who fell

And say, “By God, I shot him well

To stop the bugger screaming”
