The Pamphleteer

Ahmadinejad is standing in the circus tent
While insurgents in Baghdad refuse to relent
A shepherd is killed and his body interred
As someone pours a drink for Henry Kissinger.

A condor erupts from an Afghani veil
A Chinese bullet flies on a Darfur trail
Bin Laden dons his Soviet-era fatigues
And his Rolex watch commands the mujahedeen.

The Free World is hardly as free as it seems
Resting on the shoulders of Third World dreams
As Mugabe and Amin and Hussein have shown
The CIA just doesn’t care who holds the throne.
