Anal Retentive Android

America, the global hemorrhoid,
Awaits arrival of an asteroid
A karmic retribution from the void
In payment for the human life destroyed
With any-and-all weaponry employed
By “leadership” inept and rheumatoid;
Enthralled by dreams imbibed from celluloid;
Frustrated, hateful, angry, and annoyed
At all who’ve somehow managed to avoid
The deaths America has so enjoyed
Dispensing over decades. Paranoid,
Its useless legions still abroad deployed
Bankrupting the US, itself devoid
Of any future, leaving overjoyed
A world to savor Peace (and Schadenfreude).
