Ollie,I loathe your covert rumbling,Your mouth loud and as noxiousAs the feces choking Iraqi toilets.I detest the verge of your hatred.And this war, always now, this warStanding like the water fouledAs good people get rooted like pariahsWhile you dance and make-believe warrior!I loathe your clandestine fluency,Your overrated worldly omniscienceSidling along with your wily mentalityAnd damnable lack of olfactory senses!Does the word “Iran” give you pause?How about “Contra Affair”? “Hitz”?Come on, Ollie! Even a blind rat knowsWhen it’s standing neck deep in it!
