Too Much Is Plenty

Documentary on The War *
More and more and more!
America the Great.
Nam to Watergate,
With plenty more in store.

Don't know if I'm pessimistic
or just a shade realistic.
Politicians lie.
Easy sales. We buy!
Perhaps a bit simplistic.

It was "way back then."
Sam took it on the chin.
I'll watch it all.
I did my call,
But I wouldn't do it again

*18 hour (!!!)  television series about the Vietnam War currently showing on PBS

We ain't fought a war since WW 2 But deadly skirmishes ain't been a few When we fight one and win And become great again We'll preserve the Red, White, and Blue

You ave such a superlative humour yet beneath this one lies awful truth. I too am tired of this constant state of war. It is almost bordering on 'bread and circuses' to keep us diverted from the real goings on.

Yep. Smoke and mirrors, the politician's game... sigh.
