Pounding...War Drums…from The Right - Poem by James B. Earley

What’s up with Congressional obsession
…..Barack…having chosen…..his lot
Winning the war of nuclear aggression
……All…..without firing……..a shot

Absurdity…says McCain and others
….The President’s got it all wrong
Only way to silence Iranian ambitions
...Is dropping some bombs of our own

Obviously bullshit’s amongst us
Degrees…..of political flimflam
…..WMDs…..all over again
War in the Region its ultimate sham

...Conflict…sometimes…looms necessary
But it’s always the young man in the sight
Of non-negotiating…gray-haired old men
….Pounding...War Drums…from the Right


Author's Note:
'Iran and six world powers agreed to a framework for a final deal on Iran's controversial nuclear program, officials announced Thursday.'
