war as an allegory for sexual dysfunction

Posted by dunne on December 12, 19105 at 09:58:12:

after 45 seconds
"mission accomplished"

dis-satisfied partners...
and thousands of "little soldiers"
spent and wasted

delusions of grandeur
napoleonic urges unfulfilled

the seduction of lies discovered;
an impotent emperor
a box of kleenex
and "soldier of fortune"
lying on the bathroom floor
