No More Iranian Games Of Chicken!

The news out of the Gulf of Hormuz should make any American sick
But should not surprise us for our present speaks loudly but carries no sticks
The Iranian naval mouse has roared a second time in a chicken game
After 400 million dollars hell bent to this nation shame
Closing at high speeds on a destroyer to within 200 yards close
It may be time to give the Iranians a bloody nose
This is not like the phantom attacks on the C. Turner Joy
That gave LBJ the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution for forces to deploy
These unprofessional and dangerous maneuvers have been caught on tape
Designed for the sole purpose to this nation humble and  humiliate
May be time to have Kerry summon the Iranian Ambassador for a little candid tete-a-tete
Happens again and we will take action that Iran will regret
Blow the Iranian boats out of the water
Turn their sailors into cannon fodder
Put the idea of sanctions back on the table
Withhold the second and third installments of we don’t pay for hostages fable
If that doesn’t bring these sponsors of terror to their senses
Wipe out the offending patrol boat bases to show rogue acts have consequences
