What Do You Think You're Doing?
(U.S. in Iraq historical P.O.V.)

What do you think you're doing,
Raising Hell like that?
What do you think you're doing?
We'll help you kill that cat!
We'll get Saddam,
Destroy Al Quaeda,
We'll intervene just like we oughta.
Evil shall never have its way!
We'll chase the bogeymen away!
Then, all the other countries say . . .
What do you think you're doing?!

The author's comments:
This is a poem about the U.S. intervening in Iraq's affairs and starting the second Iraq war. The "cat" is actually Saddam Hussein. It was '50's slang for a man, but it fit the rhyme scheme better than other ideas.
