I've been reading Escobar, who explains it all so great,
Yet I find it's really tough, wondering whom to hate.
Can't they get this organized, and draw some lines in soil?
The battle map's a train-wreck mush, the hatreds all a-roil.
Over here you've got Turkmen, which means they're sorta Turk,
Just enough so they get off for doing Turkey's work.
Down the road the moderates have set up their own shop,
But just how moderate they are depends on whom they pop.
The Russkies don't like either crew, they'd rather keep Assad's,
They bomb the mods and Turks and Daesh, who to them are sods,
Pleasing not the Beltway boys, who really hate believing,
That ISIS can be pretty cool, when it's not neck-cleaving.
