Day 1080, Revenge
We’re waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Iran has vowed that they will wreak revenge.
It seems the violence will never stop,
From both state actors and the crazy fringe.
Was Soleimani killed to stop a war?
That’s what the Donald said but was he wise?
Or will both sides keep running up the score?
Will we watch piles of mangled bodies rise?
Assassinations sanctioned by a state
Are more an act of war than act of peace.
The wounded side vows to retaliate
And, when they do, all talk of peace will cease.
Trump says he acted on strong evidence
Of Soleimani planning new attacks.
Why does he now believe intelligence,
When, in the past, he’s been immune to facts?
