  Allow me to indulge myself with a minor tribute (edited) to our troops:

  Talking Baghdad Blues

  Jim Gammon, apologies to Tom Paxton

  I was just living my own life

  When I was sent to fight this fight

  I got a call from Uncle Sam

  Who has a tiff with old Saddam

  Making scuds

  Hireing thugs

  Helping Bin Laden do his thing

  So I find myself in out in the sand

  It covers this old dusty land

  I'm drinking water like a fish

  Just to have enough to take a piss

  No one knows

  Just where it goes

  But I seem to sweat pure salt from my skin

  Well one day I was eating an mre

  When a dust storm came and covered me

  Couldn't see my hand it was so thick

  The mre was full of grit

  No where to run

  Couldn't find my gun

  But it did improve the flavor, I must say

  Well then came the time as it comes to all

  The need to answer natures call

  But where to go? No way to see

  There ain't no place like where I be

  I just had to go

  and believe me bro

  Its the world's biggest cat pan over there

  Well I finished up and the air did clear

  Saw my unit was pretty near

  I took a step and dropped to my knees

  My shorts felt like they were full of fleas

  The problem, you see

  came through to me

  It took just that minute to fill my shorts with sand

  I did a shake and a wild dance

  To shake that sand down from my pants

  Then I saw a reporter from CNN

  He'd filmed me dancing in the fading light

  It made the evening news that night

  The very next day

  A citation came form the pentagon

  Seems my morale was a tribute to the corp
