corduroy licorice worked like a dog. at the office, he panted a lot and wagged his rear end whenever he was excited about a new project.

***

in the news reports from iraq, it bugs me when the reporters say "nassiriya" instead of "al-nassiriya." al-nassiriya has such a nice ring to it. almost like a song. which brings me to this creation, to be sung to the tune of the infamous "macarena."

iraqarena*

georgie bush blew off the united nations
told them to take a nice, long vacation
called them back early to hand out iraqi rations
al-nassiriya

cheney has a hard-on for historic wars
he wants his name to go down in battle lore
too bad in those war games, they cheated on the score
al-nassiriya

don't think for a moment this is dissing the soldiers
they're risking their lives and following orders
it's just the reasons why are in such disorder
al-nassiriya

in this pre-emptive strike, many will bleed,
lessons from the past, U.S. leaders won't heed
never misunderestimate the power of greed
al-nassiriya
