Buzz Ballad: The Difference Made

The Difference Made

—apologies to Neil Young and “The Damage Done”

I saw the night lit up in Benghazi

Ambassador killed by some jihadis

Ooh, ooh, the difference made

Saw public servants lie to try and show

The attack was due to a video

Lied, lied, the difference made

On TV watch the Secret’ry of State

Weasel, temporize and prevaricate

Smirking as she goes running out

I’ve seen both houses of the Congress played

With a rhetorical “What difference made?”

“Responsibility” is a charade..
