Memorial Day - 2012



Dedicated to the Memory of The Project for The New American Century and In Honor of The Foreign Policy Initiative

Where shall we go:
Next.
Our interests are,
So many.
Limitless,
It seems.
We must shape
The world;
Our defense needs are
So great,
All else must bow before
Them,
Widows,
Orphans,
Bridges and roads.
Well,
Let us not go too far,
Let us not stop that
Unbroken,
Critical,
March of pork.
But every other citizen,
Every other need,
All that makes us
What we are,
Shall bow before
Those
Armies of Think Tanks,
Overflowing
With men,
Comfortable men,
They must be Comfortable
To Think,
Brilliant men,
No doubt,
All most serious
Chicken Hawks,
One and all,
Their advice?
Send your children,
Not their children,
Send them,
Send them
Wherever passions
Percolate,
Lest they percolate
To our disadvantage,
Let us shape events,
Shape them,
Make things safe
From democracy,
A beast so few understand,
(And fewer every year)
Best perhaps instead:
Build a wall about
Our freedom.
For sharing it with those
For whom it is
Incomprehensible,
Is a dread disease
In itself.
Of course,
Those who've fought,
Nearly to a man,
Know better than
These wise men,
But,
We don't consult them.
Thank you for your service,
Yes,
Quite.
