Not Our Sort of People

They lie at every level, and persist
Even when caught. Their style abrades
With harsh attacks and verbal ambuscades.
They're not your smooth US diplomatist.

Defiance is their thing, and this has meant
Much nastiness and some non-sequitur.
They fail to understand that we prefer
Our lying, thieving brutes subservient.
