Once wise men came at Christmas – or so it's said.

The wise men came, 'To set us free.'
Or so they said.
They offered their, 'Democracy.'
Or so they said.

Next fell, from heaven, a deathly rain;
their gift of 'Shock and Awe.'
To demonstrate 'Democracy',
and show us what it's for.

Those Wise Men came – all bearing gifts;
or so they said.
'to end the Suni/Shiaite rifts,'
or so they said.

Their leader posed upon the deck
of a mighty aircraft carrier.
Above, to shield his guilty neck -
a giant Jump-Jet Harrier.

The wise men came, 'But not for long';
or so they said.
'Until they'd made our Nation strong.'
or so they said.

And still, this Christmas, standing proud,
on war-torn ravaged soil.
How odd, they never say aloud
That very small word -

'Once wise men came at Christmas,'
or so it's said.
