War and propaganda (for Liam.) Comments/Critiques?

I just found out that Americans

were irrelevant in WWII

The French had not a hand it seems

in the American Rebellion too.

The German's never held the Blitz

Polar bears sleep at the Ritz

The pope uses the woods for Schidtz

And the sun goes round the moon.

Comments/Critiques???

    Tongue in cheek, yes, but even still, L3 is very clumsy and the rhymes come too quickly to be effective.

    I like the supposed irrelevant end-line, though.

    Maybe go from there.

    Wow, Then Charles Olsen didn't get killed fighting the Germans? Then John Ourant didn't get shot down and taken prisoner by the Germans? And Robert Morgan wasn't on the Bataan Death March? And Uncle Lester's shrapnel was his imagination? Two Words! Two over-used Words!

    PS and Thanks for pointing this out, Hap. I have seen him around; now I'll watch him with squinty, suspicious eyes.
