War Against Work

I am the Secretary of Defense for Procrastination Nation;
I have the Republic of Productivity in my cross-hairs.
Twitter and Angry Birds are my two top generals–
The news media refers to them as the Double Fowl.
They lead our grand nation’s campaign
In this never-ending War Against Work.
We have no exit strategy; we declared
Mission Accomplished six years ago, yet we haven’t
Withdrawn our troops. If we do, the Forces of Motivation
Would overrun and disrupt that already volatile region.
This would threaten our lackadaisical way of life.
And I, for one, will not stand for it.
