The War's Over!

The war's over!
Our president has proclaimed!
The bombing has stopped
and peace has broken out.
The crisis is over and
life can get back to normal.
Now, I can go to work
this morning,
pick up a few things
from the store,
watch a little TV,
see our victorious army,
and the humiliated enemy,
send some money to
the poor refugees,
drive the kids to soccer practice,
lead a pleasant life,
without care,
or too much analysis,
just as I was doing,
anyway.
Three cheers!
Victory is ours!
Orwell, you son of a ____,
you knew all this was coming.
