On The Death Of An Iraqi Infant Dying Of A War

The President was vacationing in Crawford
just beyond the reach
of Cindy Sheehan and America,

except for a few days off from his vacation
to visit his own private Idaho
and a ride on bicycles with Lance.

Oh, drug-laden like athletes,
this country is replete,
Henry repeats, ain’t it neat.

While this is going on
a peaceful bomb hits a hovel
and a baby and his family are obliterated.

The brand new constitution
amounts to prostitution
like an American institution.
