The Bushiad
and The Idyossey

Reality bends as July yields to August.
The 9-11 story assumes a different shape.
The twisted policies and positions of the Saudis,
Supposed allies of the U.S. in its
Endless war on terror, unmask
The extent of their untold 9-11 role.

“Blacked out” in a congressional report,
27 pages are leaked to the national press.
Detailing tales of money trails in millions,
They also tell of Saudi officials who
Helped the 9-11 hijackers find apartments
And threw a party on their San Diego arrival.

These revelations do not directly point
To the Saudi royal family, close friends
Of Bush elder and junior. Nonetheless,
The Saudis demand the pages be released,
And opportunity to refute the charges, which
They cannot do if the documents remain secret.

Those who see the pages all agree,
The American people will be outraged. While
Evidence of help to the hijackers
May be inconclusive, the Saudi ability to look
The other way is stunning. The Saudis
And Al Qaeda are joined at the hip.

Amidst these mind-bending revelations,
The DOD announces a new website,
A “futures” market in international events.
In fact, it’s an online betting parlor, odds
Set and money wagered by the minute
On assassinations: who, when, and where.

The terror futures market is based
On the theory that public sentiment
Provides valuable insight and predictions
More accurately when money is at stake;
Better than a poll, where mere opinion is at play,
The idea’s morbid nature’s not considered.

Brainchild of John Poindexter, Rear Admiral, retired,
Who made news in the Iran/Contra scandal;
His 15 minutes of fame is decades old.
Hired by the Bushies, he creates
The Total Awareness Program, a military
Operation designed to spy on civilians.

Before the first bet’s placed, Poindexter’s game
Incurs the wrath of Democrats in congress.
Up to now just lap dogs to Prince George,
They take notice of this immodest proposal.
Paul Wolfowitz, who testifies before the Senate,
Says never mind, it’s canceled.

Weirdness continues with another Saddam tape.
He still evades capture and seems
To have no trouble contacting Al Jezeera.
A little out of touch, he announces that
Iraqis with stolen cars can keep them,
So long as they’re not lent to the coalition.

Gloating from the deaths of Saddam’s sons,
The U.S. says he’ll soon be dead or captured.
Deputy Secretary of State Armitage
Says the Army is just hours behind Hussein.
Lt. General Sanchez, commander of ground forces,
Tells the press, “You’ve not heard me say that.”

“I love you and I miss you,” Saddam’s daughter
Raghad says on CNN. from Amman, Jordan. “He was
A very good father, loving, had a big heart,
He had so many feelings, and he was
Very tender with us.” Soberly, her sister Rana says,
“He was our friend.”

He was no friend, however, to their husbands,
Who fled to Jordan, then were lured back
To Iraq with promises of safety. Their deaths
Were immediately ordered by Saddam
To serve as an example to those
Who might consider such betrayal.

The twists and turns leave most of
The public well behind, confused. Prince George,
Simply leaves D.C. for a long vacation.
At his ranch in Crawford, Texas, he plans
To do some jogging, prune a shrub or two, and
Eat popcorn at a carnival in western Texas.
