We conquered Babylon...For U.N. parking spots...


AMERICAN DREAM


 


 


 


 


Dozing watchmen


Asleep at the wheel


Sweet slumber of indifference


Sedated


Proletariat multitude


Whacked on narcotic apathy


Stagnant spirit


Insipid eyes


Blank stare of nihility


Anesthetized sting


Haunting sonorous moans


Middle Eastern death knell


Increments of bipartisan drivel


Tortured subsistence


Mighty military machine


Arrogant vision


Complete world dominance


Drunk on wine of aggression


Rueful repercussions


Synthetic American dream


Mirage of freedom’s spoils


Counterfeit success


We conquered Babylon


For U.N. parking spots


Cataclysmic consequences


Global strike capability


Thermonuclear physics


Paper trail bureaucracy


Deceiving propaganda


On the road to Damascus


Oil well fires ablaze


Petrochemical blackmail


We bet the house on crude


We lost our shirt that day


Iran


The latest “thug”


Hawks begin their chant


Plastered commonwealth


Bereft middle class


Controlled


Manipulated


Common sense


Devoured


Aristocratic puppets


We stalk our prostrate prey


Imperialism mosh pit


Insatiable greed


Power behind the throne


Ludicrous


Unbridled


Beware


As Turkey joins the fray


Frustrated


Complicated


Kurdish implosion


Volatile house of cards


Israel’s nemesis


As it is written


Deceived denizens


View the power play


We tumble blindly


Into the void


Dark expectations


Forget “global warming”


The desert heat ignites
