The voice Pat hears

The voice Pat hears
But not with his ears

Is ominous indeed
For it’s well established creed

But fret not, a peaceful religion does exist
So rejoice, the fire and brimstone shall not persist

Happy New Year, Saddam is dead

Happy New Year, Saddam is dead
But the Butcher of Baghdad did not lose his head

Tasteful video by the Iraqi government was inept
But a camera phone captured it all while W slept

Hooded thugs taunted the evil dictator on the gallows
Their vendetta executed on a day that was hallowed

They said “God damn you...You're going to hell"
Iran and the White House thought it was just swell

Shiite victims chanted "Moqtada!" at the secular Sunni
An "important milestone" said the "pleased" POTUS cartooney

"Let him swing for three minutes" one witness pled
The birds in the Green Zone will receive no more bread

A day later, the 3000th US soldier fell
"Bring 'em on" to "mission accomplished" hell

With 600,000 dead Iraqis now on our hands
And our sons and daughters still stuck in the sands

Will another revenge killing only bring more dread?
Why are those planes once again in my head?

Happy New Year, Saddam is dead
Perhaps we’ll feel safer if we just stay in bed
