A million rounds of ammunition
Coated in depleted uranium,
A whole country becomes a laboratory
For nuclear weapon by-production.

It slices through tanks with minimum fuss
Like placenta to foetus,
Miscarriages and birth defects
At least 3 times more than before the gulf war.

The world's heaviest metal
Upon impact it explodes
Millions of radioactive particles
Enter the food chain and inhaled.

Congenital deformities, genetic plague
Children born with no brains,
Stumped limbs, no heads
Entire blind villages with heart defects.

South iraq, a radioactive death camp
Thousands die monthly,
DU's legacy is further enhanced
By embargoes and artificial poverty.
"People your blood will not be shed in vain"
8 years later, the bombs fall again.
