Italian Hostage/ American Saint

Guiliana Sgrena loves news writing;
She had the truth about Fallujah
From survivors of the fighting.

Taken hostage then set free
By countrymen, heroically,
But she was shot and he was killed
By US troops they couldn't see
Trying to reach safety.

Marla Ruzica, from America,
Was there to count Iraqi dead;
"We don't record the dead civilians,"
The US Army said.

She was blown to bits by hidden bombs
meant to break the hearts of soldiers moms.

A week before she told friends
new information she had discovered:

The military DOES keep count
Of civilians bodies they'd recovered.
