The Syrian Threat
By Vinnie Nauheimer
Why are we policeman to the world?
What if our actions leave lips curled?
How much blood should our sons shed;
To beat other nations over the head?
"Cui Bono" Latin for "Who Benefits?"
Arms dealers, our ever present misfits.
Giving neither a damn for fatalities,
Nor a country's or people's moralities.
They want to sell guns and bandages;
People, to them, are useless appendages,
Blood, used to grease the money machine
While they come out smelling squeaky clean!
Hiding their unmatched greed in lofty goals.
