A Low Cost War

It has been said that a country has no permanent friends and no permanent enemies, only permanent interests. This may apply to countries, but it doesn’t seem to apply to Obama, who apparently has no permanent interests beyond vacationing and getting his wife out of town, both these permanent interests so costly as to require him to conduct a low cost drone war.


A drone is but a buzzing sound

Annoying and no more

Infuriating all around

To even up the score

Obama likes them much because

They give him peace of mind

He gets to put the war on pause

While leading from behind

A hollow army, shrunken fleet

It never rains but pours

Economy in sharp retreat?

We’ll stop the White House tours
