ACES RESPONSE - Email your response to Mrs. Hill
Afghanistan Oh land of bravery
Who devoured you?
Beasts of prey.
What is your crime?
Pursuit of happiness and liberty.
Brutes garbed as men
Out to denude you of dignity.
Afghanistan envy of paradise,
Reduced to ashes by fire and fury
Fire that burnt life and liberty,
Beauty and dignity.
Your bereaved Kabul where arson and
Rape reign supreme.
Where death is cheaper than life
Where life must cry and moan
Where children die before they are born
Where chastity is molested day and night.
Hills, valleys and lakes glow in blood and fire.
The enemy of humanity:
