As if things weren't bad enough already, pretentious NY Times columnist Nicholas Kristof has initiated an "Iraq War Poetry Contest." There are almost 150 submissions already, virtually all of them exercises in solemn handwringing, conferring senseless dignity on this dumbass fiasco.

OTOH, here's what I just submitted:

There once was a moron named Bush, Whose head was jammed right up his tush. He invaded Iraq, Turned its future all black. It's time that we gave him a push.

LBO combat rhymesters may post their own entries here: <http://kristof.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/05/06/iraq-war-poetry-contest/>
