Dogs
by Henry Burt Stevens
6/18/2004


Paint the horror of evil
it is them, not us
we pure, holy, chosen
they evil incarnate.


Meanwhile, understand
the fear of dogs
as a potent tool
for interreorgation.


Start from the top
down the chain of command
with instructions for
the use of dogs


At the same time start
the cover up, if needed
down the chain of command
as this must not get out.


Plan carefully
to have the dogs
discontinue and dissappear
during the victory cheering.


Should it happen that
the use of dogs
becoms public
too soon


Blame it on
an errant eightball
outfit while quickly
courtmartialing an E-4 or less.


Announce the destruction
and complete rebuilding
of  Abu Ghraib
with a new name


Explain we never
actually gave a detainee
to unleashed dogs-
voters are sure to believe you.

I am not sure exactly about this one. The same prison that tortured seventeen American pilots. But then each person has to voice their conscience Henry. Some of see things a little different. The behavior is not condoned but then what about the beheadings of people kidnapped does that not mean something somewhere along the line?
