"Dedicated to exposing the lies and impeachable offenses of George W. Bush"

Apology Demanded
Robert Leslie Palmer
November 2006

Righteous anger fills the land,
And flames of strife are quickly fanned:
A liberal Senator has slighted the troops,
So surely now must jump through hoops.
For naught is worse than what he's done,
And so John Kerry we now must shun.
For that affront, so rank and vile,
He surely now must stand for trial,
Unless, of course, he admits his lapse,
And for our leaders blindly claps.
But for the lies that started this war,
That sent our troops to foreign shore,
That spilled their blood to stay the course,
Is there no guilt, nor yet remorse?
And the trampling of our rights,
Are these not also dreadful slights?
What of our standing in the world,
The awe we saw, our flag unfurled,
When nations knew just where we stood
And saw that we were just and good?
Instead we now must bear the shame
Of Abu Ghraib and torture's blame;
Such wicked acts in battles past
Were done by foe, with us aghast!
What apology can pay these debts,
And who shall make it to our Vets?
