Was It Al Qaeda Or Was It The Taliban? - Poem by Joe Rosochacki

It wasn't a drone strike
It was far removed from the Middle-East
US did strike of 2,000 lbs. of bombs
On non-militant corals, damsel, parrot, tangs, and butterfly fish?
Those militant sharks and crabs
Those rays are deadly
They live on the Great Barrier Reef
How Dumb is that?
The US hoped that they were deceased
I learned, from a early age,
There's lot water around Australia
Why bomb the reef?
The US should've scrambled their jets
And search and destroy the imminent enemy
It was that deadly tuna that cap-sized a boat off the coast of a Hawai'i
Apparently the US and Australian forces were on maneuvers
And bombs were jettisoned as part of exercise
Reminiscent of Battle of the CORAL SEA
Were the corals secretly minions of the North Koreans?
Why bomb the reef?
How Dumb is that?
