A whistle in the air
Here it comes
It's a bomb
Another life taken
Another home broken
Men and women 
Boy and girls
In the center of all this
How did this all start?
Went in for weapons
Then to protect the oil
But really to find a man
A man that did bad things 
How many lives must we take
To justify this look for a man
He is a dangerous man
But our approach doesn't seem to work
A new approach should be taken
Our women and men
Are being used as pawns
To locate a man
Many people out their 
That need to be located 
For the bad things they have done
Can't send in the army
To find killers
Illegal immigrants
Lost children
But to find a man that did kill many
He should be found
I agree with that
Should be found
But at what cost?
We have devices that can look in your houses
We have devices that can control some cars
So many devices we have
Yet can't find a man
That is a coward
That hides in a cave
Or a poorly constructed house

Author's Notes:
We have technology galore, but yet we can't find a hiding man.. What's wrong with this picture?

Congrats on your award.  Sadly, I think as long as there is a human race there will be wars.  It is the only behavior unique to humans.

Your poem reminds me of a war in Iran when we forced to devote our lives to defend our country against Iraq. Thanks so much for the poem.

great musings, scott - very well done.  your work, for whatever reason, put me in mind of movies like "all quiet on the western front" and "paths of glory" where soldiers are faced with the savagery of war at the behest of clueless seniors.  exceptional work here.

The hunt for bin Laden was a ruse. Bush rocketed a few caves in Afghanastan, then used that country as a staging area to invade Iraq. Only Fox News watchers think Saddam had anything to do with 9-11.  I wonder why we don't "liberate" a few African nations?...Oh, that's right....They don't have any OIL!!....GReat write, Scott. I agree. Fighting mobile terrorist organazations by military invasion of foriegn countries makes no common sense. len

When I first saw the title I though of the song "War" by 30 Seconds to Mars :o) I like what you say in here, all the technology in the world but can not find one man. Personally I think war is just silly (for the lack of a better word) driven by people who is not on the front lines. Just me being on my soap box for 5 seconds. In any way, I like this, well written and greatly executed.

Simple, The idiots in power don't want to find him.  They'd have to
shut off the war if they did.  Oh, you'd better not get me going on this
subject,  Go into my poems and pull up "Preface ... Dedication" and you'll see my views on all wars.  And I am a Vietnam veteran.  This whole thing isn't about getting the man.  It's about keeping our economy moving.  Right now they don't dare shut the war off.  Therefore, they can't find him  They just throw us a bone every now and then to keep us supporting the war.  Don't get me wrong, I support our troops, just not the war.
Good questions

I agree men that hide are cowards.  Even if "the man" is killed there will be hundreds of men who are willing to step up to take his place.  It is religious conviction or ideology that is our main threat.  That's much more dangerous that any man can be.  It's much more difficult to combat one's religious convictions.  Even more difficult to change those views. Terrific poem!
