The GOP's Endless Wars

Declaring he’d “utterly destroy” North Korea,
Trump used his speech on the world stage
to threaten, provoke, bully
and promise an America of endless wars.

He’s undermining the Iran nuclear deal,
making noises toward Venezuela —
and the Senate abdicated its responsibility
to demand a new vote on military force.

Meanwhile, the GOP goes after health care,
its never ending crusade to hurt tens of millions,
then prepares the next salvo in a constant fight
to give tax breaks to the superrich.

Wars for the rich, wars against health care
and drumming for the next war abroad --
we’ll be consumed by the GOP’s endless wars
if their party’s civil war doesn’t consume them first.

It’s a new season, the Jewish new year,
and time for new friends and ideas,
at your local progressive social club.
