She didn’t know what she signed up for,
She does not understand it at all—
Why not use, for political ambush,
A Gold Star family’s condolence call?

She didn’t know what she signed up for,
When she launched her preemptive attack—
She’d assumed that the rules of engagement
Specified that no one could fight back.

She didn’t know what she signed up for,
She was ready to ground and to pound—
What’s a lady to do, if her target
Impolitely declines to lie down?
