Chickenhawky

(With sincere apologies to Lewis Carroll's ghost)

'Twas Cheney and the Slimy Rove
Didst Rice and Rumsfeld in the shade
Convince the mimsy Bush to go
And to Iraq invade

Beware the Chickenhawks, my dear
They'll start new wars ad infinitum --
As long as someone else will fight 'em --
To keep us all in fear

"Once Iraq has been set free
They will love us, wait and see
Osama's plans we soon will foil
And we'll pay for it with oil"

No matter that no bombs were found
No germs, no nukes, no Qaeda ties
Just Saddam hiding in the ground
Next to some Freedom Fries

Beware the Chickenhawks, my sons
Whose fierce unwavering battle cry
Invariably involves a lie
That's why they call them neo-cons

"With Saddam gone," the hawks did boast,
"Our mission is accomplished -- mostly.
"Democracy will spread," they said,
"Like margarine on toast."

The insurgents though, would not be quelled
By Sunnis spoiling for a fight
And Chickenhawks then found themselves
Up to their necks in Shiite

Don't ask them when the war will end
They'll say "Peace? It's round the bend
This year, or next, or 2010."
Beware the Chickenhawks, my friend

'Twas Cheney and the Slimy Rove
Didst Rice and Rumsfeld in the shade
Convince the mimsy Bush to go
And to Iraq invade

Wonderful. I'm imagining Leslie Howard reading it a la Pimpernel Smith. Oh, and you're blogrolled.

Keep blogging and keep the faith. Found you through Bride of Acheron.
