The Final Conflict

by STEW ALBERT

A new big lie
is being told.
Al Qaeda has found
a happy home in Iran.

No solid evidence exists
for Rummy’s claim,
it doesn’t have to.

He’ll repeat it again and again
the media
will go jumping into embed.

Iran will be linked to 9/11
and Dubya
will promise
that Operation Cosmic Revenge
will annihilate evil
and bring on the Messiah
and very cheap oil.

After the war
no Messiah
Rummy claims
There’s reliable intelligence,
abundant terrorist chatter
that the son of god was kidnapped
by North Korea.

Dubya declares he’s gonna finally finish
the Korean War
and the Koreans.

He’ll personally invite Jesus
to the
Republican Convention.
