A Bill for Mr. Press

For all the sacrifices General Colin Powell made for America
He earned his freedom in choosing his favorite political party
What have you done for this land
To deserve your "honor" to tear down his name?

If I may send you a "bill" on behalf of General Powell
That will be an honorable dollar
Then I would doubt you possessed one
Only a reconsideration of your words, Sir, then we will be done!
