HOW MANY MORE...
YOU WANT TO WIN,
DON'T YOU?

What are we winning?
Hearts and minds
peace on earth
another no-bid contract for Halliburton?
Really, what is the prize here?

It’s like a kid’s baseball game
and some enraged parent
runs onto the field with a bat
and beats the ref to death
because he didn’t like the call
As they drag the parent off the field
he looks at the team staring at him
with their little mouths agape
and he says to them
"You want to win, don’t you?”

We’ve already lost
The game’s over
What’s happening now
is a free-for-all in the stands
We need to clean up and move on.
