Dickie & the Death Squad


Dick Cheney knew of a secret squad
That did assassinations.
It got the A-OK from him
And flew to foreign nations
To knock off people Dick agreed
Should not be sucking air—
While Dick the Diabolical
Stayed hidden in his lair,
A musky room deep in the earth
Away from prying eyes
Of congressmen and senators—
And also Google spies.
