The Knighthood of Tony Blair



On the Knighthood of Tony Blair

Kneel

Now bow your head in shame
I dub Sir Death shall be thy name
Kneel with Bush stoop low you fools
Amidst the broken bombed out schools
Kneel where children laughed at play
Kneel where now their bodies lay
Kneel amongst your rotting corpses
Iraqi mothers , Afghan daughters
Kneel and see that  your Knighthood
Is bathed in lies and soaked in blood
Kneel in penance not in glory
Deceit and Lies is your real story
Kneel in napalm, acid, fire
For God Himself dubs thee Sir Liar
Kneel in anguish  kneel in pain
For all we loved who died in vain
Kneel condemned at court in Hague
They dub thee pestilence  Sir Plague
Kneel , you author of Truths abduction
You are the weapon of mass destruction
Kneel in terror of your Jihad martyr
You stain upon the Order of the Garter

Arise
Sir Tony
