Proper Reverence

They’ll be getting new sabers
New masks to use on the front lines
Bald eagle familiars
Suggestions are welcome, they say
Anything we’ve missed?

Flags made of aluminum foil will blind the enemy
To use the foil is to be right as rain
Maybe the soldiers will be taught new marches too
Dancing to titillate the splendid guests of Mar-a-Lago
But you’ll be dancing in rags
As they eat gold leaf

Dance, puppet, dance
Twirl your saber
Do a push up or two
The crowd is pleased
So he is pleased
So you are pleased
