Requiem for a dead man who does not know he is dead

(Is this) Something to die for

words on a white house mission
circling like turkey vulture
devil worshipers smelling road kill

all that remains, Iraq refuse
regurgitated from the wasting carcass
left after the oil was burned

freedom perverted by greed
men whose junior high shriveled ignobility
fathered global catastrophe

misunderestimated he bones
spell the fate for a cowboy too long in the sun
drug busted by some Allah Jesus

spurned by some Wahabi faith
faith that iz more right then ever, before
a jealous God gets the last word ?

He became his own Julius Caesar
a faux whose sword made from his words
stabbed him in the back
