Herded to war
like cattle to pen,
Yanks were easy
to rouse-via-fear
by neocon herders

Their sole goal
during 10+ years
was kill Muslims
of either gender
no matter their age

Invasion went well
as locals yielded
at first but learned
from Ho Chi Minh
how to bog infidels

Invaders tire when
Hollywood ending
can’t be found plus
'Merica can’t afford
spoils earned via folly

Irony gets glaring when
gunji-talk warhawks
during Bush flip to
pansies during Obama
