January the 10th

It’s hard to know who to believe

Who shot the plane down?

Years of mystery reading says

Who benefits?

Or was it just a jumpy finger

an accident after all

Funny – I always thought

the leader of the free world

would have the itchy finger

And I still don’t know who benefits

except for rich men

selling arms

to morons
