Bellicose Bush

I’ve finally figured out George Dubya’s philosophy: If you can’t solve a problem, make it bigger:

Bellicose Bush
By Madeleine Begun Kane

If you can’t solve a problem, expand it.
Demand an enlargement. Command it.
What else could explain
Dubya’s bellicose reign
Of great terror and shame? Please disband it.

    A fraudulent President named Bush,
    Flew us into Iraq with a WHOOSH.
    To pour gas on the fire,
    He’ll surge into quagmire.
    Does this man have his head up his tush?

    There once was a laddy from Dallas
    who drank in his Daddy’s palace.
    Then came the oil,
    his end to toil,
    and turned us all into an ass.

    There’s a partying goat ropin lad
    Who rode in on the tail of his dad

    We’re paying the price in Baghdad
