Obama Women Vacation Again…

Obama Women Vacation Again…

In China the people are slaves.

The women have little feet;

They are squeezed.

Mao killed millions of his own people

For communism;

Obama’s rhetorical gambit

Of “forward” and “change.”

Obama likes big government,

Little people.

The Chinese are used to putting up with a lot.

But they never before had to put up

With Michelle and her mother.

Eight thousand three hundred and fifty dollars a night

For the presidential suite at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang Hotel

And Michelle pretends she is worried about income inequality,

The poor,

The homeless,

And her husband’s vaunted middle class.

The staff at the hotel can’t stand Michelle’s mother.

Like mother like daughter.

When I was young and spoiled in Great Neck

I was embarrassed to be part

Of the flashy Jewish nouveau riche.

I wanted to be subtle,

Waspy,

A much demeaned race.

White men have given up their rights

To be right.

Women earn a few cents less at work

But inherit billions.

Bling is also embarrassing,

As loud as Kanye West.

The blacks wear bling like it is rosary,

Prayers for money.

Michelle’s mother is running around the hotel

Returning returns,

Complaining about complaints,

Imitating an ostentatious, tacky bracelet.

Isn’t Michelle the one who said that her husband’s

Election “was the first time in my adult lifetime

I am proud of my country.”

America isn’t proud of her.

Take off the high-heel sneakers lady,

We don’t like what’s going on.

Take off that red dress, baby,

We don’t want you showing off on our dime.

Take off that façade lady,

We don’t like your nouveau riche pantomime.
