What Are Wars For?
When melancholy Danes are involved
No matter what our hero claims
Afghanistan's a civil war
The only diff'rence from Iraq's
is what plunder we fight for.
If you remember, Wolfowitz
snookered Bushie and his veep,
Assuring both of them and us
we'd get Iraq's oil on the cheap
But Fogh Rasmussen's Afghan war,
without the lure of rich oil fields,
Is essentially concerned with
who beefs up their poppy yields.
Fogh badly needs Stan and his troops
to cultivate and pull the weeds,
Acknowledging all he expects
from Karzai are his brothers' seeds.
So who approved this combination
of Danish guile and double dealing?
McChrystal on his hands and knees?
The Pentagon will hit the ceiling.
If only Fogh would use Tim Geithner
Experience is what he needs,
Negotiating on behalf of
Goldman's stake in Burpee seeds.
