The Lyrics

A serious parody. Dedicated to the troops in Iraq, doing their best under impossible conditions. May they stay safe and come home soon.
Condoleeza Rice: Huh? Quit Iraq?
Dick Cheney: What for?
George Bush: I'm trying to think

We were good, soldiers brave
"Mission accomplished"
All this PR buzz, bring 'em on
Showed our happy Humvees
Then we searched everywhere, no weapons
President screwed up, we fight on

And we can't go home
Our leave has been revoked
Mismanaged and tired and nothing has been gained
Mismanaged and tired and nothing has been gained
nothing gained

We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club

We're gunned down in Allah's name
Our mission is unclear
And we come home in a wood box,
Family tears
It's a wild war, built on great deceit
And we fight on, but we're running out of time

We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club

Now another soldier's dead
Must fabricate good news
Say he fought just like Rambo
Though that's not true
It's a wild war. Osama's still at large.
The old men make war. We're sacrificed again.

And we can't go home
Our leave has been revoked
Mismanaged and tired and nothing has been gained
Mismanaged and tired and nothing has been gained
nothing gained

We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club
We're the dead meat club

Oh no! Congress tried
But veto signed
The dead meat club
Don't know the OS? Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-deVRLs03jw

Thoughtful and affecting piece of writing here, Mason. 555

Ironic: The real B-52s are considered obsolete by some, yet despite having been used since the Korean War, they're still quite serviceable as warplanes; it's Bush and Cheney who are obsolete. "Any entity that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man -- that state is obsolete." -- Rod Serling. This parody is submitted, with my approval.

Thanks Poop, alvin & Kristof. I hope I'll have a reason to write something positive about this mess one of these days...

Yell louder! Surely your Allah is a god! Mayhap he is deep in thought, or sleeping, or hath stopped by the wayside.

To the "silent minority" thanks for all the ones, in this case, I wear them as a badge of honor. Elijah: MY Allah? Wrong! If you're inferring that I'm on the side of Islamic terrorists, G-d forbid, then you've seriously misunderstood this parody.

Ai Chihuaua! Lookit all those 1's! This must've really rubbed some Bushies the wrong way! (Interesting how if someone disagrees with your politics they give you 1's on pacing, LOL!)
