PHONE CONVERSATION BETWEEN THE 9/11 COMMISSION AND THE WHITE HOUSE CONCERNING THE COMMISSION’S BLISTERING REPORT CARD ON HOW WELL ITS RECOMMENDATIONS HAVE BEEN FOLLOWED
So firemen can talk to cops,
You must provide a frequency.
The fact that this has not been done
Is government delinquency.
Iraq is coming right along.
We’re confident we’ll win this war.
The way to honor lads we’ve lost
Is stick it out (and lose some more).
Disaster funds are handed out
By pork, not risk, and, by the way,
The loose nukes that so worried us
Are getting looser every day.
Our troops are making progress now,
And trained Iraqis have increased.
We win the battles that we fight.
We’ve taken some towns twice at least.
Still, air freight cargo goes unchecked,
And information goes unshared.
We told you then, we tell you now:
The USA is unprepared!
Saddam–that evil, awful man
— Is captured, living in a cell.
Democracy will spread from there.
The Middle East will soon be swell.
We have to say, upon reflection,
There’s something wrong with this connection.
