YOU'LL COME FOR THE CURSES. YOU'LL STAY FOR THE MUDGEONRY.

Something Must Be Done

What human soul could ever see
These scattered dead who couldn't flee
Because legitimate concerns
Forced them to stay and take their burns -
And not resolve, once more, to fight
Shoulder to shoulder with the Right
Against the Wrong, for love that's tough,
And all that patriotic stuff?

This vile attack, to all our shame,
Displayed no telegenic flame,
And fell to no enlightened end -
So who could fail to recommend
Retaliation without fear,
Since any damage will appear
More decorous on our TVs
As corpses than as refugees?
