Rogue State

Nobody had time to wonder
about a podcast they hadn’t downloaded.
From one billion minute speakers,
The Chameleon’s voice exploded.

This is your Uncle Sam live on Patriot Radio.
It’s time for a blast from the Past.
In 1998, concerned the world would forget
Africa is a US colony, my buddy Bill
courageously ordered a Tomahawk missile strike,
on Al-Shifa Pharmaceutical Factory, in Khartoum.

Christopher Hitchens, your claim it was a decoy
from Oval Office hanky panky
is ‘as ridiculous as a legless blind man,
winning the Indi 500,
on two wheels, in a model T Ford.

The truth is Al-Shifa manufactured nerve gas.
Journalists who say otherwise
die in accidents,
involving everything from helicopters to rocking horses.

Some reporters claim their demise
is as convenient as champagne rain
at a paupers wedding.
Those tabloid hacks ought to be shot for such slander.

One unpatriotic writer said my investigation
into the missile strike on Al-Shifa
was as laughable as Shaquille O’Neal winning
the Grand National Steeplechase,
on a chain smoking dwarf horse.’
Can’t find him for further comment, funny that.

The CIA’s proof
of nerve gas manufacture at Al-Shifa was ample.
There is no need
for more than one suspect soil sample.
Pleas for it to be independently tested
were rightly detested.

Moving right along now;
at midday I’ll be interviewing my best buddy,
the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Clan.
First, an NRA community service announcement.

‘To maintain this position of disparity…we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and daydreaming…we should cease to talk about vague and…unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of the living standard and democratization…the day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts…The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better.’ George Kennan, Director of Policy Planning US State Department 1948.

‘Never before has a single suspect soil sample prompted an act of war against a sovereign state’ former CIA official Milt Bearden
