Pills to keep us up
Pills to bring us down
We’re the US Air Force

“America’s Air Force:
No one comes close”

to their targets
they keep missing
because for some reason
their vision is blurry
their heartbeat is rapid
they’re dizzy and sweating.

has enlisted the help
of America’s Most Wanted
to hunt down terrorists
they should turn to the WB
and see if Buffy
will help them hunt vampires.
