The Merry-Go-Round

Says on TV
we’re gonna join up
with the terrorist State of Iran
against the terrorist group ISIS

That we’ve been aiding
in its campaign of terror
against Bashar al-Assad of Syria
who’s been “killing his own people!”

The same ISIS
and offspring of al-Qaida
we financed and organized to terrorize
the Soviets out of Afghanistan

That is now overrunning
the government we installed
after hanging Saddam Hussein
and killing a half-million Iraqis.
