Rule of Thumb

I’ve never donned khakis to fight for Iraqis,
I’ve never done State work next door in Iran.
On Shiite and Sunni my knowledge is puny,
But this much I know: you don’t burn the Koran!

You’d be grossly in error to think I’m pro-terror.
I hated Saddam; I’m no Taliban fan.
But the true underpinning of hearts-and-minds-winning
Is one simple guideline: Don’t burn the Koran!

So if you’re in Algeria, Yemen or Syria,
Libya, Egypt or Anything-stan,
For the sake of the nation and self-preservation,
Take heed of this warning:  Don’t burn the Koran!

    I’m still laughing at that one.
