You Could So Neat Fleet Across the Ocean
You could so neat flee across the ocean
Having set fire to our house with your torch
With the ghoulish Hell you set in motion
The flames ran you right off our country porch
While climbing those Diplomatic Corps rungs
In pursuit of an ambassador's post
Your children screaming at top of their lungs
Could not impel you to land on our coast
Sniggering at the destruction you wrought
Pretending to the world as diplomat
Making good the sweet escape that you sought
From those who know you as an alley cat
    What looked to you like career advancement
    Looks to me now like child abandonment.
