I was honing my tan on a beach in Caracas,

When the newsman went and announced a fracas.

It seemed Venezuela now posed a grave threat

To my sweet land of liberty, of thee I fret.


"A threat to security" was the phrase the prez used,

Adding a "national" lest Guam feel abused.

Serious stuff this, with jet pilots scrambling,

Bomb shelters opening and pundits a-rambling.


Would schools be shuttered and Pop Tarts sold out?

Would moms call in kids and tanks be rolled out?

A threat to security is mighty strong stuff,

And woe is the fool who thinks Yankees take guff.
