Cheney’s “Last Throes”
by Calvin Trillin

When rockets fly and battle smoke is thick,
It’s good to hear from “Four Deferments Dick.”
He’s always sure. He knows what warfare is–
Enough to know it’s not for him or his.
Insurgents somehow, though they’re in the throes,
Kill more GIs– but no one Cheney knows.
