There Are No Generals Like Eisenhower

There are No Generals Like Eisenhower

there is only this
a world infamous puppet show on tour

the show is called
The Life and Times of a War President

a character like Punch
holds a paddle marked with the letters WMD

the puppet show
stage is burning

journalists disappear in cities
where the puppet show plays

from behind the curtain come
the sounds of torture

every show begins with
the Bush twins reading Mein Kampf

every show ends
with the Constitution in a blender
