FEAR MONGER

Behind a polished desk he sits
with his fancy pen in hand,
the fate of humans deemed unfit
sealed… just as he planned,
first in Nam and then Iraq
and, lest we should forget,
those souls in poor Afghanistan
who ain’t seen nothing yet.

Just wait until he intervenes
in Korea and Iran,
his cheesy grin obscene,
because he is “the man”
playing god from where he sits
inside his sterile room
scheming like the devil,
in hopes we’ll go, “KABOOM”!!
