Pardon This Page

I reveal these words to the American,
who has the right to pardon this page,
while the whole world's getting out of hand,
as the evils of revelations rage,

Why's the US helping foreign lands?
when it can't get a grip on it's own,
If they intend to make any future plans...
why not start right here at home?

It's nobody's right to invade anywhere;
there's no serious threat here at home,
so send the officials whom send our troops there..
and on the front line with a cell phone,

Yea! parachute them in with a baseball bat,
a cell phone and a roll of duct tape,
One they get to where imposing minds are at...
they can put on their superman cape,

Or, drug them and issue them a used baseball bat,
a walkie talkie and a catchers mitt...
Once they realize where and the heck they're at,
there's a chance they'll resign or quit,

And pardon me if you don' t feel the same,
or believe "just" I do,
but those thousands of humans killed and maimed...
continue growing in numbers too.

    I like this. It has an old fashioned feel to it in that it is in the vein of a great tradition of issue poetry. I question the validity of it but this is done so well. The structure of the lines is excellent and the use of rhyme is not forced. the whole poem comes across as well thought out. AS first I didn't like the last stanza, but on reading the poiem again I feel it works well. The narrative has a measured feel to it and there is no hyperbole that usual dogs poems such as this.
