Neurotics build castles in the sky,
psychotics live in them?
No, that's really for ordinary people.
Presidents can be eccentric,
like Nixon when his war was clearly over,
and he decided to bomb them harder
One last kick at the cat I guess. Or,
Presidents can have nothing to lose by
trying the only strategy that might save
a great con and heist. The greatest oil theft
of all time. Going for all the marbles is better
than ignominious personal defeat.
It would be a shame to lose that billion
dollar embassy in the Green Zone too.
The one with 1000 employees and only
six that speak Arabic. Why so few? Because
the oil business is all English speaking anyway.
