A Plea For Sanity - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Since Bush had no clue
About the right thing to do
He said he’d wait for
Their report on the war

If the course they’d steer him to
Differed from his point of view
All the world knew he’d reject it
He just couldn’t accept it

The non-partisan commission studied the facts
Advised a course change to his mess in Iraq
But he’s not willing or able to travel that route
Since admitting mistakes, is not his strong suit

Even First Lady Laura newly proclaimed
The fault’s not with Dubbyah, “the media’s to blame”
The press and T.V., in their reality view
Are too harsh on her husband when stating what’s true

Our troops in harms way, every second, every day
Where in Iraq they’re stuck, thanks to this inane lame duck
America has suffered from this White House brain drain
And needs to return to sanity again
