The Neo Conservatives

The Red Army did more for the Jews than every Hasid in Brooklyn.

 

And Podhoretz is a poison and a liar and a thief

 

They are talking in the campuses, chattering ignoramuses

 

Transmuting into fact their delusional belief

 

 

Woolfowitz never saw a wolf or heard a shot in anger

 

A nicely, ivy, pampered life of sweet chablis and brie

 

Disraeli to Victoria, applauding all the regnant rich

 

He crafts a policy of imperial enmity

 

 

 

With minds so capacious, and homes gracious and quite spacious

 

They will entertain nothing but an idiot speck of spin

 

They are stalwart in conviction and have a predilection

 

To enlarge their Sadaam and make him Saladin

 

 

 

They’re elated that the nation, soporific and sedated

 

Has berated and deflated every inkling of a thought

 

And from this barren brain, mentally wholly lame

 

They have pruned and marooned any meaningful retort

 

 

Dainty, enervated, on divans they will have fainted

 

At belated realization that they’ve lost their sordid war

 

The world at large is heaving;  the U.S. it is besieging

 

I behold the sizzling riots of a thrashing thermador
