I JUST HAD TO SAY IT!
STATING THE OBVIOUS

“I know what I’m doing”
Bush retorts
For once
I think he tells the truth
He meant to create
a deficit
to wipe out social security
to starve programs
for the weak and poor
He meant to put
a fox in every hen house
his contributors lick their chops
feather their nests
He meant to out Wilson’s wife
a lesson to those who dare speak up
He meant to start that chaos
in the Middle East
and hides the flag-draped coffins
of our kids
over 1500 to date
He knows just what he’s doing
