Giving Up On Karzai
(And warning other politicians)

Pull out, pull out. Withdraw all our troops.
Let the Taliban decapitate Hamid Karzai.
Use the "zero option" that got us out of Iraq.
Don't let another American die,

Where American effort and losses are not appreciated,
Where Hamid Karzai gives nothing at all in return,
Even refusing to chip in three dollars
To help pay for the stake at which he will burn.

Can you imagine a politician that cheap?
We'll make all arrangements for his demise
And he won't contribute a cent of his opium profits
When he has such lucrative family ties.
