WMD, Improvised

I never liked the WMD acronym. In practice it didn't seem to include ordinary bombs, which are, literally, weapons of mass destruction.

Don't worry Mom.
It's just a bomb.

One of the most fearsome WMD's has finally turned up in Iraq. Gas. Improvised poison gas, I guess you could call it, since the method is to do suicide truck bombings with big tanks of chlorine. And death by chlorine would be horrible, I'm sure.

But does it really matter
If you die of lung corrosion
As opposed to being shattered
By conventional explosion?
