Poetry

Tinkerbell Obama

 

If damnation is an absence of good then the devil is a minus sign.

He doesn’t exist.

He is lost in his own sense of evil like a gang member.

I am looking for the meaning of good and evil,

Of fair and foul,

Of what it means to lead a good life and whether it matters

In the first place.

The Ninth Circle of Hell should be for the politicians

Who promise ladders to the sky and

Throw you down a hole in despair.

I have learned to hate our President.

It is not rude.

It is realistic.

Results predict evaluations.

I have studied the distance between what he tells us and

What he offers.

You’d have to jump continents to catch up with his lies.

He stole our doctors and rolled them up in bureaucratic balls.

He signed a lousy deal in Iran just to say that he achieved

Faux nuclear peace.

He would kill us all if it made him look good.

The graves of the Cuban dead will not be showing up

At the American Embassy.

It is easy for Obama to forgive.

He was not shot in the back of the head by Che.

The dead Cubans do not want to be danced on by the ballet slippers

Of Tinkerbell Obama.
