Deconstructing the fascist trajectory of our NeoDem-RepubliCon dilemma one rhyme at a time
2009: Final Two Words -

What Americans think, feel, vote, and say has zero bite.
With millions of votes Diebold stolen, accountability: so slight.
NeoRadical RepubliCons chose how to so waste our might ---
Just where, when, and why we had to go START a fight.
They'd planned for Iraq, with 30 years more oil still in sight.
Must control the price and flow into OUR gas tanks, right?
Exxon-Mobil, BP, Shell - profits future sure looks bright!
Hyped bogus threats, then fanned the flames to such great height.
Made sure 9/11, Anthrax, and mushroom cloud fears fed the fright.

Pulled the Towers, then with balled-up flags to plug their ears:
A Patriot Act panic attack => waived our rights to calm the fears.
How well the shredded Constitution wiped away wasted tears.
Slick magic trick: lasted 800 years - now Habeas Corpus disappears.
Just load the planes with C-notes, no bids please, as thermite dust clears;
Corporate warriors - No Draft! It's a private war - Three Cheer$!
Fat cat$, well fed by exce$$ Warporate greed, $uch profiteer$
Billions borrowed daily - vastly wasted, now eight straight years.
Tens of billions fraud, whistleblowers stalled by Justice: no one hears.
Say what, a change of plan to end war profits? Sharpen up the spears!
Another traitor must be skewered, trot out the NeoCon-tradicting seers.
From Limpbowel, O'Rlie-to-me, and their ilk, we quickly hear the jeers.
As they interrupt their homophobic rants on "No Marriages for queers,"
With fresh, Right-Wing think-tank-framed, cliche' Newspeak smears.

Sad sight, so many flags draped over coffins never seen.
The sinister lies that filled them buried deep beneath such patriotic sheen.
Human losses well disguised, and media filtered from our collective eyes,
By corporate puppet leaders, whose agendas we must soon revise.

Pity Iraqi families, alone with blood, pain, death, despair,
Depleted uranium shells explode - their poison dust spreads everywhere,
While pompous jingo windbags flood the U.S. propaganda-polluted air,
Will spews of false praise glory, hide the true neglect in veterans' care?
Fox Snooze hype NOT, as your heroes, our loved ones lost;
Their blood, for oil, spent badly - much too high this cost.
Keith Rupert Murderdoch, the boss who must be tossed!

Well past his "Mission Accomplished" day, in years by more than four,
That so-delusional Decider was still not looking for the exit door.
One aggressor, an invasion-occupation, it never was a war!
The stench, the smell - corruption, failures everywhere,
Yet all we heard WAS STILL what played upon our deepest fear.
The drone of platitudes preached to stretch our stay another year

"The job is almost done! "
"Must keep them Terrorists on the run!"
"We can't abandon Iraq until we know we've won."
"So sorry for the 100 dead civilians per insurgent one."
"Just another 30,000 surge, so send us your brave sons."
"Trillion dollar debts, their kids can pay these no small sums!"
"Waterboarding works. Don't call it torture. We don't break thumbs!"
NO NO NO! Time true Patriots stand and shout "Convict these Bums!"

Lean hard on traitors, like Lieberman, to not just lose their parties,
But instead, to restore our Republic; do we still have one?
Hit the REAL Axis of Evil => ARREST Cheney-Bush!
Perhaps small justice, but at least some!
