A Citizen’s Query

Kerry’s dark buffoonery
in exclaiming to Afghanis
that power-taking against
their constitution would
bring the end of American aid:
but John, what of the billions
to illegal power-takers in Ukraine?

Oh, yes, I see clearly now:
your Afghan statement’s
but a new version of Do as we say,
not as we do. You and Ms. Nuland:
who kisses whose arse?   Is that
with or without ketchup?
yet certainly with relish…

In any case, king’s jester
with stylish coiffed hair,
we ordinary citizens
must pay the piper…
