pomes of buddy don: The Unitary Executive in a Time of War

The Unitary Executive in a Time of War

A felony is legal if in war
The President decides he has to act
In ways that violate the very core
Of our constitutional contract

Thus all those principles to which we pledge
Our allegiance with the flag’s salute
Must be sacrificed much like a hedge
When Presidential power’s absolute.

And if the enemy is not a state
With powers to surrender on a ship
Then such a war might never terminate
And leave us stuck forever in its grip.

We can restore our civil rights, then, later,
For now to be free we need a dictator.
