Douglas Polk- Two Poems

The Cold War Revisited

Putin sneers at Obama,
the tattle-tale,
bullied along with Ukraine,
America sits and contemplates past mistakes made,
the Right prophesy,
while the Left inoculate with morphine and sunshine,
and past presidents roll over in their graves.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel

with an IQ to match his age,
he leads the armed services by example,
a pawn in another man's game,
the nation now spends its nights in prayer,
hoping war will not come,
while morons roam free in the pentagon.
