Our planes and tanks redefined rout

But what was the war all about?

Did ceasing our fire

Disclose a desire

For Saddam to be in or be out?

Saddam's an opponent arrester,

A neighboring nation molester,

And also (who'd guess?)

In the hostile U.S.

A 10-figure foreign investor.

It did take him 10 years to do,

But targeted Ronnie came through,

Sticking out the old neck

By endorsing a check

On the gun buyer's caliber, too.

Opinion can turn on a dime:

In polls the Republicans climb,

Thus proving the rule

That says you can fool

Half the people at least half the time.
