I have written, and write, verses on different subjects,including politics. Some are satiric and some, I hope, amusing. Feel free to comment.

Stars Get in Their Eyes

Are American Generals in Afghanistan who have four stars
spending too much time in speakeasy Kabul bars?
Sent to that country their country to serve
they soon from the straight and narrow swerve.

As we contemplate the Mid-East slaughter
one must ask what they are imbibing with their mineral water.
Loose-lipped Stanley McChrystal was the first to take flight
when he just could not keep his mouth shut tight.
