Stooperpower

By Chudi Okoye

Anthony Blinken blinks inartfully
At the spate of unspeakable horrors
Visited upon Gaza by America’s vexed ally.
Joe Biden, his boss, bends unabashedly
To the whims of a wild client state
With balls bigger than its budget.

Oh, how are the mighty crawling!
Amid the uneven brawling in Gaza
A brag superpower is brought low
Subjugated by a swaggering ministate.

Parading a puzzling weakness of will
Even, some say, an uncommon callousness
America gazes as blood gushes in Gaza.
It mouths insincere moral platitudes
And peddles a pious plan for Palestine
Whilst sending munitions to mutiliate Gaza.

Alas for the abject unbecoming!
America, once the world’s moral police
Now, under the bind of Bidenyahu,
A bald and barefaced stooperpower.
