Tactless Tactics



Now Catholic theologians give advice

On tactics.  Give advice?  No!  Make demands

Instead!  Trump’s not, they tell us, being nice

When he avenges severed feet and hands

Of service members hurt in distant lands;

When he whacks out a major terrorist.

Are missiles all an orange beast understands?

Well, now he has our theologians pissed!

His policy should have a limper wrist.

He ought to send more money – and some flowers.

The mullahs in Iran would then insist

On lying with our guys in peaceful bowers.

This sort of faith is something that I doubt.

Do we have enemies?  Then whack them out!
