Classified No Secret

I read the classified today, looking for a bargain
All I found was a misleading ad for Cheney
It was a call to adventure, and free life insurance,
But I am too old to die for nothing special, at least

One who no longer believes the myths we were sold.
It has to do with rank and privilege, moral amnesty,
Going blind for fame and promotion, tunnel vision,
Pensions for prevarication, presumptively promised,
