"Slarrow" refers to the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" from Hamlet's soliloquy. Here are the chronicles of such darts and whatever attempt there may be to take arms against such a sea of troubles.

The Sands of Babylon

Wow. Greyhawk posted that little poem I put in the comments at The Mudville Gazette. Then he posted about the mass graves we know about now but just suspected before going to war.

Look, I know Iraq is messy (not a mess, but messy; there's a difference). But what serious response is there when we uncover mass graves like this? Is it not something to be celebrated that no more mass graves will be filled in that country by that tyrant?

(To those who would say, "Yeah, but other tyrants are filling mass graves elsewhere, and we didn't attack them. What about them?" gotta start somewhere, eh?)

Anyway, if anyone's interested, here are the links for the original Poets For The War, its current incarnation, and the poems I wrote. (There are only three, I'm afraid.) If you don't know what the fuss is about, you can read my original poem "Sands of Babylon" here.
