It seems like only yesterday in a jungle closer to home than most of us would like to admit, our government was in the Contra drug business, selling drugs that flood the streets of America in exchange for weapons for the Contras against the Sandinistas. And today we have Fast and Furious running guns across the border to find their way into the cartels and murder scenes including one of our one. We also have the spectable of an Attorney General who may have committed perjury. It is a sad sad day for American Juirsprudence and this Alaskanpoet was kept in plausible denial by his Attorney General who for a whole host of reasons should at the minimum be fired.
Know When To Holder Know When To Folder
Eric Holder needs to be fired and charged--no slap of hand rebuke
Running guns is so serious, you do not only read about the nukes
The G letter is not just about a spot
This is where governments come to rot
Maybe the memos talked about cars going to Mexico for nagauhyde
I do not believe it any more than Xerxes could with whips stop a tide.
Unless this man who has shed its impartial core
Was too stupid to in the rain know when to close the door.
He testified under oath and this poet believes he lied
And one of our own gunned down alone on a border died
Perjury for a lawyer or an AG should be the most heinous sin
Where else does the rule of law have any chance to begin
I hope our President in such details as running guns to cartels
Has not an idea that such a stupid idea would exist.
An being an accessory I would not support
But how could Holder not know of all the reports
When do men of character who are sworn to the law protect
Man up and with remorse admit a decision I will always regret?
When do we once again accept responsibility and not toss blame
To avoid our actions that besmirch and our integrity defame
Holder must be a smart man but if memory fogged and not clear
Obama's last acts in his only term will be a pardon so he will not fear.
