Honeywell Redux

Editing again. A syllable or two of Honeywell Cartel has been changed to improve the scansion and tighten up the POV, and there's a new release, which, if it has no other virtue, replicates the "love to love" of the original. "Infrastructure" may be a tongue-twister, but, my addiction to preposterous words is such, that I couldn't jettison it.

Now that we've destroyed Iraq completely—
Blown its infrastructure all to hell—
We'll rearm a few of 'em discreetly
Through the Honeywell Cartel.

First, we bombed 'em back into the Stone Age,
Then we formed an Arab Baby Bell.
Pretty soon, they'll join the Mobile Phone Age
Through the Honeywell Cartel.

So what, if it breaches
Every rule in Hoyle?
Spare us all your speeches;
The fact is, oil is oil—

So everybody's gonna make a profit
(Cheney's done particularly well).
If you've got a hat, you'd better doff it
To the Honeywell Cartel.
