Ode To Our Tremendous Weapons

Oh say can you see our beautiful missiles
launching from warships into the night?

Can you trace their majestic arcs in flight,
won’t you praise them as they prove
that might makes right?

Lo, behold – their swift strike will shudder the earth
into fiery plumes of gorgeous consummation,
if you’re down in the polls there will be elevation!

What glorious moment could be more satisfying?
What guided munitions could be more gratifying?

From the land of the free and the home of the brave
we will bomb them all right back to their cave.

What death metal pounding could be more grand?
What power on earth can compete with our brand?

Hear now the ring of the Liberty Bell,
for Exxon Mobil, Chevron, and Shell!

Peace we shall bring, and prosperity too,
oil will flow for all, though the cost be dear.

Now all you bad hombres, be warned well –
we’re the greatest nation, and you should fear!
