Secretary Kerry has been in the Middle East;
Pretty awkward timing for his trip - to say the least.
Many of our "allies" in the region aren't thrilled
With our current policies and so relations chilled.
Kerry went to Cairo first; he'd not been in a while.
Next day, Egypt put its former President on trial.
Military overthrew his government and now
Claims that it was not a coup... But I cannot see how.
Even though it's clear from all the evidence we've got,
State Department hasn't said if it's a coup or not.
U.S. law forbids assistance to a government
Which has come to power through a coup. The law is meant
To promote democracy, so now we're kinda stuck...
'though we'll send them aid, their military's out of luck.
Kerry went to see the Saudis next; they're also mad.
Feel the U.S. backed out on agreements that we had.
They've turned down a Council Seat 'cause we did not attack
Weapons sites in Syria... Ain't chutzpah that they lack.
Any place where radicals are bred goes back to them;
They're the ones who fund those mosques and schools (which costs a gem.)
Now they're scared those angry chickens may come home to roost...
Here's an idea for you; just stop giving them a boost.
I wish Secretary Kerry luck - which he will need -
'cause the only thing on which the region has agreed
Is that the United States is, somehow, all to blame...
I guess it is comforting that some things stay the same.
