The Charge of the Chickenhawks
by DCDave

Perle and Wolfowitz, Kristol and Will,
Limbaugh and Dick Cheney, too,
When it comes to fighting bad guys abroad,
They'll tell us just what to do.

Take on those "jihadists," get on with the job,
We know that our crusade is just.
Though we can't quite explain what the war would be for,
We'll attack them because we must.

But when the Vietnam bugle sounded its call,
These brave fellows must not have heard.
They were too busy straining their ears
For the sweet sound of "You've been deferred."

David Martin
