Obama Can’t Bring “Real Healing”

Real Healing

 

Healing is not when you ignore your wounded soul and pretend

That it is all alright,

That you are OK,

That you have not been hurt in the place that you are bleeding.

 

I think that turning the other cheek encourages another slap

On the other cheek

And it doesn’t teach the hand that is slapping you

To become a better palm,

Fingers less frolicking in their own violence.

 

If I ever walk down the streets of Paris again

I want to celebrate the vengeance of a polite society that finally

Stood on its Trojan Horse and galloped on the heads

Of tribal Islamists,

 

And healed through moral and physical retribution.

The cartoons of Charlie Hebdo are not as humorous as Obama

Trying to exonerate Islam and calling Islamic Terrorists

Like Bush did, Evil doers.

 

Yeats predicted that Obama was the Second Coming—

“Turning and turning in the widening gyre.”

He is so leftist that “the center cannot hold.”

 

Ideologues like Obama are “full of passionate intensity.”

His opinions are blindsided like a horse with blinders.

He lacks all conviction except for his one-sided views.
