    EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!
    YOU MIGHT NOT BELIEVE ME, BUT YES IT’S TRUE
    WE’VE ALL BEEN DECIEVED BY THE
    RED, WHITE AND BLUE!!!

    The son finishes what was started by the father,
    his children are exempt from duty,
    but your neighbor’s son died across the water.
    The charges range from
    Corruption, Bigotry and Greed
    Lies about weapons of mass destruction
    the warnings of Koffi Anan,
    of which, he didn’t take heed.
    Now ”W” is on trial,
    arrogantly proud
    and stuck in denial
    About the real deal
    behind the false claims,
    and crooked aims
    of the shady intelligence
    standing there professing his benevolence
    with an address to the state
    spewing out right lies
    and pledging a war on terror
    powered not by righteousness
    but motivated hate.
    The troops of the union were sent,
    tens and tens of thousands of ‘em
    I mean “W” was bent!
    Tomahawks were fired,
    The Ba’ath party’s regime was retired
    Saadam’s statue torn down
    but still no nukes were found,
    now disgruntled and damaged is the morale
    of the troops on the ground.
    And what is his suggestion
    for treating this cancerous sore,
    this abomination of humanity
    this evil, evil war?
    “Sure, I’ll bring the boys home, but only
    to replace them with more
    ….and all this to what avail?
    We the people are demanding answers
    Mr. President!
    Or better yet……
    Impeachment, for
    Telling us a tale!
