Iraq: four years of freedom

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

The irrepressible Tim over at Bloggerheads has asked people what they were doing online on 20th March 2003 (the eve of the invasion of Iraq by people who thought they knew better…). Happily, he’s chosen me among others as his first group of taggers! So here goes…

Well, I posted a little anecdote about an Iraqi blogger dodging bombs and that my dad was glued to the television. He LOVES war. In another life, I’m pretty sure he’ll have been a commander of some enormous infantry division or something. And my other post on that day pointed out that underhand goings-on at the EU didn’t stop to make way for the war effort. And over the following days, there were various Saddam-based jokes, like that tasteless host I am….

So, what did you post on 20 March, 2003 (or as near to the day as possible):

I woke early one morning,
The earth lay cool and still
When suddenly a tiny bird
Perched on my window sill,
He sang a song so lovely
So carefree and so gay,
That slowly all my troubles
Began to slip away.
He sang of far off places
Of laughter and of fun,
It seemed his very trilling,
brought up the morning sun.
I stirred beneath the covers
Crept slowly out of bed,
Then gently shut the window
And crushed his f**king head.
