Tag Archives: a distant war





By some, the Press attitude,

Approaches naivety rude…

With bare notice

Of warnings like this,

Has the state department come unglued?

Not likely but more to the point,

Our Media may be out of joint…

So often deceived

What can one believe,

So which view must they anoint?

Obama takes it seriously enough,

He can’t afford any more guff…

Or scandal this time

As his problems climb,

If no action was taken–he’d be stuffed.

But then again these “wars” seem far away,

With little effect on us day-by-day…

Unlike in Berlin

With bombs raining in,

For most it’s just another day.

So I’m glad this Administration is cautious,

Otherwise more folks would be nauseous…

Of a government who’d kill

Allegedly at will,

And blame it on filmmaker causes!
