Cassus Belli?
by DCDave

We called it the Kosovo peace agreement,
But was it one? Not quite.
We told the Serbs they'd have to surrender,
Surrender or we would fight.

To forestall our bombing they were asked to accept
Our army of occupation,
And they reacted as you would expect.
They reacted with indignation.

And this is the cause for which we would send
Our young people off to war.
It's a cause for which we'd deliberately kill,
Though it's hardly worth dying for.

David Martin
