Of course the terrorism card’s been played
By Bush for years now–making us afraid
With orange alerts and constant talk of war.
With that he’s scared off criticism for
Those weapons warnings that were proven phonies,
The no-bid deals he handed to his cronies.
The evil ones, he says, are so abhorrent
He has the right to snoop without a warrant.
The threat is grave, he says, so for a while
He’s canceled suspects’ right to have a trial.
To criticize his reign, he says, appeases
The bad guys, so he does just what he pleases.
To play the scary card has been his tack.
Is he surprised that someone’s played it back?
