I scream for eye cream
Bibi risking US – Israeli relations
On partisan politics dangerously revolting
Insulting Ugly American mental floss

Vainella unilateral Bibi sitter bluster
Insolence impudence impertinence arrogance dance
Butter toasted butt-out pee-can
Stinging cheeky slap in faceoff

While Obama opposed invasion costing
Trillion greenbacks thousands of lives
Creating geopolitical ballyhooed wink debacle
Bibi championed Iraqi Road invasion

Washington DCeit caramel knowledge poisonalities
Cabana Oreo banana Obama split
Cheery cherry Kerry no-go-tiation pits
Caramel kvetch chutzpah Nutty-Yahoo

Imagine Whirled Peace froZEN meltdown
Never too shockolate yo-yogurt
Game of cones no surebert
Why can’t we be friends
