Obama Wants to be the Pope

Obama sprinkles holy water on himself and pretends

He cares about the poor.

He eats quail.

 

He is a fancy dandy who identifies with the poor

Like a misplaced perception.

 

He lives in the White House while the Pope

Lives in modest quarters and

Pretends that he is lowly

In the rich Vatican City.

 

The Pope doesn’t understand the free market.

Obama hates it and wants to stumble economic growth

To a halt-down of communistic failure.

 

The Pope is exceptional.

Obama believes in same sex marriage being consensual.

 

Obama is the brain that got away;

You know, the other one thinking spiteful thoughts

In someone else’s head.

 

He wants the middle class to get their fair share

While he lowers their average income

And lives like a pig nosing truffles.

 

Obama wants to be the Pope because he likes

The robes and the headdress.

 

He is so narcissistic that he wants to rise from the earth

And inhabit a heavenly kingdom.

 

Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize based on nothing.

Maybe he can win a sainthood based on his being there

Like Peter Sellers was there when he wasn’t.

 

The Pope has little experience of the ways of the world.

At least he is more than America’s silly community organizer.
