The Chickenhawk Brigade
by DCDave

Lieberman, Limbaugh, Cohen, and Will,
Trent Lott and Dick Cheney, too.
When it comes to fighting the bad guys abroad
They'll tell you a thing or two.

Root out oppression, bomb till they drop.
We know our intentions are just.
Though we can't quite explain what we're bombing for,
We do it because we must.

But when the Vietnam bugle sounded its call
These brave fellows must not have heard.
They were too busy straining their ears
For the sweet sound of "You've been deferred."

David Martin
