by Stanley Cooper

Increasing bets while losing
Is the losing gambler's choosing
So I'm not surprised at Bush's urge
To increase our losses with a new troop surge

He's playing craps with American lives
Giving false hopes our boys will survive
A reckless gamble, a sucker's bet
The Iraq civil war, is his worse bet yet

Two more years of audacious arrogance
Two more years of unwarranted belligerence
Drunk with power is what he's about
Bush's roll of our dice is a sure crap-out
