Will You, Barack, Go To Iraq?

(In the style of Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss)

---------------------
I am McCain.
...
McCain I am.
...
---------------------
That McCain-I-Am.
That McCain-I-Am.
I do not like
That McCain-I-Am!
---------------------
Will you, Barack, go to Iraq?
---------------------
To Iraq, I will not go
To that request I must say, "No."
---------------------
Please, won't you go from here to there?
---------------------
I will not go from here to there.
I'll not go there from anywhere.
I do not like it in Iraq,
For I am he, the Great Barack.
---------------------
Could you visit one small house?
Quietly -- just like a mouse?
---------------------
I will not visit one small house.
I will not go there as a mouse.
I will not go from here to there.
I'll not go there from anywhere.
I do not like it in Iraq,
For I am he, the Great Barack.
---------------------
What if I paint you in a box?
Will you rush there just like a fox?
---------------------
Not in a box. Not like a fox.
Not to a house. Not like a mouse.
I will not go from here to there.
I'll not go there from anywhere.
To Iraq, I will not go
To that request I must say, "No."
---------------------
Would you? Could you debate me there?
Come with me, show how you care?
---------------------
I would not, could not debate you there.
---------------------
Iraq is better, you will see.
You may find that you'll agree.
---------------------
I could not possibly agree.
My mind is set, I could not see.
So try to paint me in a box
Or get me running like a fox.

I will not visit one small house.
I will not go there as a mouse.
From here nor there nor anywhere.
About Iraq I will not care.
---------------------
Your pastor -- would you go with him?
Since he's who turned you from your sin?
Or how 'bout Hillary instead,
With bullets flying overhead?
---------------------
Not with my pastor, he might speak.
With Hillary? Give me a break.
Just try and paint me in a box.
You're sly and cunning as a fox.
Not to a house
Just like a mouse.

I will not go from here to there.
I'll not go there from anywhere.
I will not journey to Iraq,
For I am he, the Great Barack.
---------------------
By plane, by train, by car, by bus?
Then we could meet with Patraeus.
---------------------
Not bus nor car nor train nor plane.
Leave me alone you pain, McCain.
I do not like it in Iraq,
For I am he, the Great Barack.
So to Iraq I will not go,
To that request I must say, "No!"
---------------------
You do not like it, so you say.
But one more thought, and then you may.
Listen ... and then you may, I say.

For you I will arrange to meet
Ahmadinejad, won't that be sweet?
---------------------
McCain, if you will let me be.
I'll consider it, you will see.
(pause)
Say -- Yes, I would like to see Iraq,
Then Ahmadin can see Barack.

By plane and train and car and bus,
I'll even meet with Patraeus.
My pastor, he can come with me.
Still don't invite that Hillary.

I will debate you while we're there
To show how much I really care.
And you can paint me in a box.
You've made your point, you clever fox.

I'll take a side trip to a house,
Bold and big, not like a mouse.
I will go from here to there.
I'll get to there from anywhere.

Yes, I will journey to Iraq.

Thank you, McCain, I'm greatful Barack!
