Is it a coincidence that the verdict and sentencing to death of Saddam Hussein have arrived two days before the pivotal U.S. Congressional Elections? The Borkowski poet in residence wonders what George W. Bush might be thinking…
Well we got him, he’s going.
Saddam’s been shown the door
I hope that you won’t think about
the budget deficit no more.
We’ve got a measure of justice
for all those people that he killed.
We’ll hang him by the neck
to pay for all the blood he spilled,
so now it’s safe to vote Republican
in the midterms. Don’t be slack!
There is no escalation
of violence in Iraq.
It’s just a bunch of guys
celebrating with their guns
cause we got him and we’ll hang him
and they want to show their sons
that American democracy
is a real force for change.
Next we’ll save Iran
cause it’s easily in range…
