The Lyrics

To express suspicions about previous US intelligence, I altered this old love song as it might have been twisted in the mind of a high-value detainee at Guantanamo or Bagram Air Base.
Dick Cheney, night and day you torture me.
I sometimes wonder if this dwelling time under
Can someday be a felony or violate comity
In one-world court suit when accusing starts.

Your peace departs
From the moment you say, "Can't shove or strain";
And you'll surrender, though small our arms again.
This wretched flea that tortures me is agony, misery, pain!

Commander-in-chief floats above,
Bans harsh treatment by CIA.
Your spies have to answer for dreaming up
Those tortures for schooled lips that never pay.

This year that abusing will end,
No matter the hell we intend.
To make you believers, we'll rise to achieve.
It's only the Jihad we love.
While we debate the merits and morals, and what the meaning of "torture" is, more "man-caused disasters" are being plotted. I'm at for feedback.

Lines 1-3 and 8 should be in the past tense (although present tense fits the OS better); i.e., tortured, wondered, Could, That, tortured me was.

Whoa, Barry! Super-cool OS, super-clever title switch, and probably the first parody to use the word "comity". (Done a coupla' "firsts" myself, so know whereof speaketh.) 555, and remember, the 111 is the equivalent of a 555 for successfully touching a nerve in some anonymous coward.

"Lines 1-3 and 8 should be in the past tense (although present tense fits the OS better);" ... I go with staying as parallel with TOS as possible, even to the extremes of neologism in the "Major General" parody. Parodists twist; it's their right to write!
