Obama’s Failure of a SOTU

SOTU

 

I don’t know what you are saying because your mouth

Is moving in some foreign direction.

 

Spaghetti is coming out of your ears

And you could be Italian

If you weren’t a refugee from the land of phony Kenyan words.

 

If you ever told the truth

You would break your record and discredit

Your lies about Obamacare,

Keeping your doctor,

Your health plan,

Your view that Islamic terrorism

Should be called extremism.

 

Do you think that Timothy McVeigh’s ghost

Is reading the Koran at an Isis beheading?

 

Is workplace violence a female activist getting

Ten cents less on her paycheck?

 

You stand up for women but pay them less at the White House.

You count your words and promises but they are not money.

 

Men die earlier than women.

What do you pay them for early departures?

 

Do you think that you saved the Middle Class

When they are earning less money?

 

Do you really believe that you stopped divisiveness?

What speech writer invented that joke for you?

 

Your only cohesion is in separation.

You turned red and blue states into birds flying in opposite directions.

 

Do you want your underlings to get a fair share

Of communism?

 

You never knew how to do a good deed

But always dealt a good deck of words.

 

I watched you on television making your State

Of the Union Address.

I am ashamed of the applause.

 

The Democrats’ hands clapped.

Their thoughts were somewhere in fantasyland

While hands were being chopped off in Saudi Arabia.

 

Obama failed, flopped; he should have been stopped.

But self-destruction has its own marvelous momentum.
