Oil's Well That Ends Well by Unknown

We support freedom,
But only nonviolent.
We sell guns to dictators,
If they are compliant.
Our foreign policy
Makes my blood boil.
Torture is okay,
If you sell us oil.
Our great chum Hosnari
Was a classic dictator;
He shot people first,
And asked questions later.
We had no fight with Qadaffi-
He sold Europe crude;
He blew up a plane;
He was one murderous dude.
These are our friends
Hillary likes some--
At least they're not commies;
At least they're our scum
We nurture freedom;
We supply lip service;
Sell guns to dictators.
Now we are nervous.
"Fight for your freedom,"
"We've got your back-"
"They're Air Force might bomb you
"But you're right on track."
We're all for freedom
Except here at home--
We've got the Patriot Act
Where the buffalo roam.
