A small Suggestion

I have a small suggestion, modest without a doubt,
For how our anti-war campaign might well increase its clout.
It seems like all the ducks are where they should be, in a row,
But something solid is missing there; what it is I think I know.

Though speaking here, and marching there, talking-up on TV,
Buck naked; we never quite make it to show true solidarity.
A feat unique and terrible—Big drama is needing now
Something rather striking. From our leaders we need a "wow!"

For Penn then, and Sarandon, Streisand, Fonda, and the rest,
Here’s a real "can't-miss" proposal, with solidarity addressed.
Bring in Georgie Clooney too, count Sheen to say he's proud,
And why not writers Chomsky, Fisk and Rall...hell, all that crowd!

Snarling condemnation? Skirting treason?—fine, so far!
But genuine solidarity, folks, demands you raise the bar.
We've sent away to Gaza Strip for twenty-nine nifty vests
With special pockets for Semtex, each a kilo more or less.

Like your heroes in the East, you wear them at work and play,
To show the world that you indeed believe in what you say.
And then to make the plan complete (be a team now, don’t show fright),
Each vest connects to double switches, linked in by satellite.

Now here's the choicest part, and one you'll sure appreciate;
The switch arrangement means that two switch panels rule your fate.
One panel's sent to Dubya, labeled: Against "my war for oil."
The other goes to Saddam, marked only: Folks from Western soil.

So there you stand, your Hamas bombs each live and cinched up fine.
Like so many others—who aren't yammerheads—it's your life on the line.
You all say Dubya's poison, a "baby killer" you contend.
His actions all just "venal plots" while "Saddam is our friend."
They've motive and opportunity now, so tell us, oh please do tell!
Which man do you honestly think will, cat-quick, blow your ass to hell?

"OK folks! Cut—and print that! Put the vests there with the props.
The limo's here and let me say, your performances were tops.
Oh! You'd rather keep the vests? So stylish with your britches?
OK but mind, there’s a bidding war on Ebay, for those switches."
