Updated: Sep 25, 2021

Winiken', Blinken, and Nodding-Off one night Didn’t know what to do …

Hiding the fact that they are not so bright

Only known and acknowledged by a few.

"Where are you going, and what do you wish?" reporters inquired of the three. "We are working to bring home the long deployed troops ... Having spent too much gold of others have we,"

Said Winkin', Blinken, And Nodding-Off.

The reporters laughed and sang a song, As they rocked the worlds of those who knew;

Over the cries of Gold Star Families all night long Noticed by the consciences of few.

Gold star families became their main dish.

That fact ... most would refuse to see.

"Now cast your blame wherever you wish, never responsible are we!"

Triumphantly cried the diplomats three,

Winkin', Blinken, And Nodding-Off.
