Quote Unquote, George W. Bush

“We will succeed unless we quit.”
– George W. Bush 16 November 2006

“The only way we can lose is if we quit,”
Our leader went to Vietnam to say.
He skipped that war to golf and lounge a bit.

No jobs mean Iraqis queue to take a hit,
I wonder if historians will yeah or nay:
“The only way we can lose is if we quit.”

The lanterns up from hell are dimly lit,
Who will be the next in line to pay?
He skipped this war to golf and lounge a bit.

At us the whole world loads and throws its shit,
Jail the bums, impeach, without delay!
The only way we can win is if he quits.

Don’t stop screaming, throw conniption fits!
The black hole we’re in must somehow turn to gray,
He skipped this war to golf and lounge a bit.

As poverty encroaches, no time to sit,
Our debt already causes disarray.
“The only way we can lose is if we quit.”
He skipped this war to golf and lounge a bit.

this is a Villanelle
