The Afghan War Ends (#1897)

The USA leaves Afghanistan after 20 years of war,
It was the modern-day version of Vietnam to its core,
Their government collapsed and their military didn’t fight,
The Taliban practically reclaimed the country overnight,
There’s chaos in the streets while Americans evacuate,
Islamic militants patrol and attempt to subjugate,
Afghan citizens flee to the airport in hopes to escape,
Reporters attempt to capture the events on videotape,
President Biden is getting heat for what Trump started,
Republicans clamber for him to resign for how we departed,
Despite the training, resources, and funding, they ran scared,
But after 20 years the Afghans should have been prepared,
Seeing the outcome, what was the blood and sacrifice for?
It’s the same question voiced after the Vietnam war,
