The Disease of Don Rumsfeld's Hubris

The Disease of Don Rumsfeld's Hubris

Sadlyissimo, the disease of Don Rumsfeld's hubris, exacerbated by complications of Cheneyprosy Condition, has been a bleak and black plague upon the hopes of now quarantined America that will take a generation to de-scar.

There is no way in which our nation is not enervated by the catastrophic concatenation of overweening & putrid thinking housed in the Unfun House of the Pentagon, eerie mirrored walls and all.

Among the atrophys, we have spent billions which could have been spent on the constructions which would serve our children (health care; education; tiddlywinks; carbon footprints; a laptop for every child; watching grass grow — all, I wildly speculate, would serve our future measurably MORE than this grotesque debacle in the Cradle).

Ozymandian is all of this drearily and desperately sad monumental waste:

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed,
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings:
Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

Prophetic. Ozydondias. .. that colossal wreck he, with this sneer of cold command, has left us on the lone and level sands.

  1. Oh my gawds, chancelucky, where can I get a double dose of the Rumsfeld Vaccine????
    These folks seem to have had whatever the lobotomy equivalent of radical disconnection with their empathy and their common sense centers is.

  2. This crowd has the most impenetrable hubris imagination can darkly comprehend. No ray of doubt enters their sphere.
