“I’m Right Behind You!” Promises
Dr. Strangedubya

Dubya rides the bomb
all the way
down to the ground,

well, actually, he gets
a Chicano Marine
to ride it for him.

Dubya’s half-gallon
cowpoke hat hangs safely
in the Oval Office,

the Chicano rides
the bomb
all the way to the ground,

the bomb explodes,
blowing up buildings,
men, women, children,

dogs, birds, plants,
and the Chicano Marine
is vaporized,

breath him into your lungs,
that’s him.
