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.
