Wynken Blynken and Nod Played by Harris, Blinken and Harris Asleep Creating for Us a Nightmare Dreamle


Sadly no one listened to Senator McCain when Anthony Blinken’s appointment in 2014 he attacked
And now 7 years later his ignored warnings to haunt us are coming back
The only good thing one can say about Blinken is that phonetically he is rightfully named
For his performance in the Afghanistan takeover by the Taliban he should be shamed
Intel in mid-July sent him a cable warning that Afghanistan would soon fall
Quickly after the August 31 pullout the Afghani Army would not be able to stall
Worse the cable gave advice that must have been ignored to accelerate the removal of civilian personnel
Must have been ignored as evacuations seemed not to have accelerated leaving thousands to face the Taliban Hell
Blinken like his poetic namesake must have been asleep
As we were caught flatfooted and now facing a disaster to reap
Wynken, Blynken and Nod
Whose fishing trip was flawed
Not on the ocean in a sturdy boat to with nets the seas ply
But asleep in a trundle bed and on their dreams to rely
Blynken is Blinken and Biden must be Nod
As the neurons’ in his mind ability to function is flawed
And Wynken  must be Harris with her eyes to illegal immigration root causes shut
A true troika sound asleep in a sea of dreams steering the ship of state into a deeper rut
The poem was a dream that ended well
For us waves of reality swamping the ship of state in a deadly Hell
