A Craven Color
by GC SMITH

Preying on fears
of a stupid electorate
may be very smart, but it's yellow

Ducking the job
in the 'Bama Air Guard
seems to me a shade yellow

Lying to you and me
about WMD also
is a hue of yellow

Suited up with a sign
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
for the TV cameras is yellow

Yellow calculations
that trade in fear
have brought forth horrid results

All of these things
are craven and yellow
but a soldiers' blood is crimson
