Obama says Washington is Broken

OBAMA SAYS WASHINGTON IS BROKEN

 

Obama says, said, and intimates that Washington is broken.

He is Mr. Fix-it.

Except he doesn’t fix it.

He is not Harvey Keitel in Pulp Fiction.

 

He breaks the broken bricks of Washington down into fake chips.

Obama likes breaking things—

Break, broken, to be broken are the epitaphs

On his speeches.

 

He dislikes himself so much that he kisses his own hand.

Narcissism is his personal disease

That he spreads like the flu.

 

He invites Ebola-ridden West Africans and their nurses to visit

Saying that that will keep them from sneaking in.

He’s got to be kidding.

They still will sneak in like diseased zombies.

We have no borders.

And the passported dangers will just add to the bouillabaisse of corpses.

 

Obama won’t fight Isis.

He sends planes to bomb absent targets.

 

He spies on us thinking that we are part of him.

He is the world.

He consumes us.

 

He believes in change because he secretly wishes that

He was better than himself.

 

He breaks the best health care program in the world

With the ballpeen hammer of Obamacare.

In his fix we take our licks.

We can’t afford his broken program

And can’t figure out his failed Website.

 

Obama brags that he ended terrorism and killed Osama.

Isis is not the end of terrorism.

It’s its compilation,

Deviation,

Exaggeration.

 

The navy seals killed Osama on a tip from Khalid Sheik Mohammed

When he was water boarded by George Bush.

Obama wasn’t there.

He was pulling divets from his cleats.

He was erasing his score and making a speech about his sub-par

Performance.

 

Has Obama heard that they found weapons of mass destruction

In Iraq?

I guess you can’t listen when you’re always speaking.

So many words.

So little significant meaning.

 

Obama has broken the broken but he has not added up to the fixed.

He affirms failed action so he can get free tuition to the hall

Of worst Presidents.

 

He is a hack without the cab.

He is a speech that is all intention but no result.

His teleprompter has climbed up to the moon under a false heaven.

 

In the beginning Obama was brought up as a Muslim.

His father and step-father were Muslims.

Is he looking for the seventy-two virgins in the sky?

We want to live but we die.

Obama is the failure of his own lies and we are the result.
