The Dog's Bite
 

The Tali-banned dog fighting
But America permits the dog-bite
Partying of religious Afghans
In the fanged gamble, their moneyed
Heroin poppies up, jagged blooms
Clawing the world market
Leech flowers blossoming deep, needle
In 'Vein' to others circusing the world round engulfed,
And the propped legislature votes
The blooded zenith
To execute apostates,
Ah well so sick
And punish blued wives who left
Hell! For several thousand bills, fighters
Can get out of jail free cards
So much jawing teeth
Dogging our worn flag-budded tail.
