Lines on Donald Rumsfeld's Ousting (in the style of E.J.Thribb)

So, Donald Rumsfeld, you have been kicked out
And not before time many millions would say,
But not before you have caused lots and lots
Of totally needless deaths worldwide.
Some people regard you as a belligerent,
Aggressive, unfeeling, unpleasant, smug,
Self-satisfied pseudo-fascist warmonger,
Who more than acquiesced in illegitimate invasions,
Torture camps and assorted brutalities
All in the name of so-called democracy;
And God alone knows what the people
Who don't like you have to say about your character.

My best friend's Mum, Mrs Nora Spinks,
Suggests helpfully you should seek out
A new career on "Big Brother" or maybe on
"I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here",
But I'd advise against their accepting you
As you might well lose your temper
And bomb the TV studios to bits if you lost.
