Fightin' side of me (a poem)

It's now clear there can be no ambivalence

About the Liberals' moral equivalence;

Where they now have lost all perspective,

Or any desire to be truly objective.

Their comparisons began to be troubling

When 'Fats' Moore got their fuzzy heads bubbling,

With his 'terrorists as Minutemen' inanity,

That unleashed all this Liberal insanity.

 

Amnesty twits poured 'Moore' fuel on the fire;

Their calling Gitmo a gulag was sure to inspire

The loons on the Left to more treasonous tropes,

And 'Moore' metaphors from fifth columnist dopes,

With Bush—hating congressmen carping, complaining

About conditions no worse than my own basic training,

Where screaming mad sergeants deprive you of sleep,

Make you sleep on cold ground, and herd you like sheep.

 

Had they ever served, our deceitful Dick Durbins

They'd have more than hot air in their treasonous turbans;

Had they worn the uniform, endured deprivation

They might not so quickly condemn their own nation.

Founding fathers were terrorists Brian Williams indicts,

Another media effete who never fought for his rights.

With their traitorous comparisons, the Libs fail to see

They're getting dangerously close to 'the fightin' side of me.'
