When is a Liberal a Gun?

A LIBERAL IS A GUN

 

If a gun is a gun and it picks on easy targets with bitter powder

Than a liberal is a gun.

 

Bang.

Death be easy and not proud.

Cowardice thy name is a bullet shot at integrity,

Murdering tradition,

Bloodying values with progressive envy.

 

And liberals brag through the gun barrel of their lies,

Their opaque transparency.

Their contribution lags but their chest-beating gags the real charity

Of conservative generosity.

 

The liberal is a prototype of failure.

No, no, he is actually self-hype in a collage of weakness.

Our enemies cut off our heads

Because Obama projects weakness and the light

Of a failed beacon.

 

The liberal shoots himself into the situation with a bent finger

And announces he wants to be fair,

To give you your share

Of communistic pie,

Coddling lies.

Aye, aye to deception.

So begins the downfall of America at Obama’s inception.

 

The liberal wants a classless society but sits on a limo’s hood

Handing out scraps to beggars because he wants to control them.

He then shoots them in the backs

Because evil and good are lost in his gray opinions,

His indifference to anything but votes,

Power,

Greed and the fun of winning.

 

 

Obama’s six shooter of rhetoric and lies, cheats and kills incentive

So that the poor stay poor in the sights of his gun.

He is a gun.

He is the death of American exceptionalism.

 

All hail that liberalism like communism fails.

The shortages are like a bullet in the back and the betrayal of theocratic

Bureaucracy is as obvious as Obama’s four Pinocchio’s.

He speaks up for the middle class

As he picks their pockets

And laughs with Gruber about how stupid we are as he plays

His blue guitar.

 

He picks at the strings of his lies.

As Wallace Stevens said,

“You have a blue guitar,

You do not play things as they are.”

 

And the man said, “Things as they are

Are changed upon the blue guitar.”

 

And they are.

You can no longer get your doctor or your health plan.

There are too many lies to name.

I’m bored.

Is he insane?

Or are his voters the psychopaths?

Whatever tune Obama sang failure will be his aftermath.

 

Gotta run.

The liberals are the gun and want to shoot me in an act they mislabel kindness.

And we vote for Obama on the missing braille of our blindness.
