HAIL TO THE CHIEF
by Daniel Thompson, Poet Laureate of Cuyahoga County, Oh., USA

Hail to the chief
Grief thief.
George the younger
The Florida count wonder
The oil war-monger
With a strike-first thirst
Look! It?s rockets red-glare
Our pockets thread-bare
The bombs bursting in air
Oh! Where?s Osama?s lair
Does Dubya really care
Listen! His nightmare prayer.
Oh daddy in heaven
Like my birth daddy on earth
Let me attack Iraq
Let me bomb Saddam
Let America hear 43rd?s psalm
The warlords thy Shepard
Thou shalt not want
Thy civil liberties up front
The Constitution is only an old scroll of parchment
When the thunder rolls that dog won?t hunt
Tear it up and repeat after me
My country tis of thee
Sweet Homeland Security
To thee I sing
To the FBI
And if they are busy try thy CIA, OK?
?Cause we all be hip
Listening to loose lips
Hungering for the apocalypse
And to those rainy-day prophets who say again
What does it profit a nation
To gain the whole world and lose its own soul
I say, ?Whose side are you on boys,
Which side are you on?
Suicide or genocide?
C?mon boys
You gotta decide,
Suicide,
Or genocide?
C?mon boys you gotta decide.
C?mon boys,
LET?S ROLL!
Tear it up?..two, three, four
Hup?.two, three, four
Hup?two, three, four
Tear it up?
Tear it up?..
Tear it up???.
