American Political Morality

The Nixon tapes record the following urging
Of President Richard Nixon to National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger
During the Vietnam War:

“I just want you to think big, Henry
For Christ sakes the only place
Where you and I disagree

Is with regard to the bombing
You’re so goddamned concerned about the civilians
And I don’t give a damn

I don’t care”
If Nixon were still alive
Wouldn’t it be appropriate

For Boston’s finest police officers
To arrive at San Clemente to arrest the terrorist Nixon?
Would his fellow citizens cheer and applaud his captivity?

Would we chant, “USA! USA! USA!”
