OF BUSH AND BEANS

The outcry was heard far and away before it was done
The 343rd said ‘Sir our vehicles won’t run…
dead-lined they are and we are staying away
To go on this mission… we’d be killed today’
Send them the parts… and mechanics so brave
from the land where ‘Old Glory’ does wave
And just this last thing they crave
‘Send us… too… some clean gas… that’s all we ask’
The government and top brass… they conferred
… and from the President there was heard
‘Fix those vehicles and send them some clean gases
Sixty barrels of crude and forty cases…
of beans should take care of all their whiney asses’
Now… in case that you should…
don’t confuse Bush the shrub…
with Bush’s Beans which are very… very good…
