Obama’s Grand Puppet Show

PUPPET SHOW

 

Howdy Doody was a puppet back in the day.

Howdy, Mr. Doody.

I loved him.

He was sweet.

 

President Obama is four Pinocchio’s.

He lies.

His nose grows.

 

He suffers no consequences,

Pays no penalties,

Dines on China while handing out paper plates

To the middle class.

 

He is stupid despite the Harvard degree;

A school for bloated monolithic idiots.

 

He thinks everything depends on race.

As if every black man thought the same thoughts

And all whites had albino brain cells.

 

He didn’t set the fires in Ferguson.

But he did set out the mood like tinder

 

And the match that he lit with his thumb

Made the blacks seem abusive rather than abused.

 

Obama’s got some destructive class.

Sharpton is a riot that has broken out in a class

Of disadvantaged children.

 

Obama is smarter

But he is more dangerous than his own confused intentions.
