I love it!  It reminds me of my poem, "Iraq-naphobia."  Same idea.  Very, very funny and clever!  Indeed, profound.  :-)

I gave it a "10," just so y'know.  Well worth a high rating for the play on words alone!

I know you think you are so special but your poem was written long ago:

A Separate Peace - by John Knowles
"Brinker Hadley could compose his Shortest War Poem Ever Written The War Is a bore if he wanted to, but all of us had to take stronger action than that."

Haven't any of you people ever read a decent classic book? Can't you remember anything?

And then there is the book:

War is a Bore and Other Poems by Edward Vogeler
 — unknown

And that is not to mention the several books written by marines and others which use the words in their titles.

this poem is the ultimate example of cliche'

If you want we could drop you in Anbar province with nothing but a butter knife and an american flag draped around your ass and then you can see what a bore it all really is... truth be told though 90% of the time you'd just be throwing rocks at the side of a tent repeating your tired little parroted mantra over and over in your head while you waited for a mortar to drop in and pink-mist your silly self. A little effort next time, if you please.
