Obama: A Descendant of Nero


Sebelius puts Toto in her basket and rides away from Dorothy’s home. Toto jumps off of her bike and runs down the road.

The doctors and the insurance plans
Follow Toto.

There are fires in the Kansas wheat fields.
The Mideast is burning in the Midwest.

Obama is a descendant of Nero.
Instead of fiddling he plays the gyp-sheet harmonica.
The music of the teleprompter is busting up the allegory of truth.

Nero-ObamaSebelius is followed by the flying monkeys of Oz.
She will go down in history as one of the worst administrators

Unless she snitches about Obama’s role in the murder of Emerson,
Jefferson and free enterprise.

Obamacare is not under her care.
AHC is the signature achievement of an ideologue in a fog.

Perhaps Obama is a frog.
When you kiss him he does not become a prince.

He becomes the twitching legs that Democrats snack upon.
He tears American exceptionalism from the map and throws it
Into a garbage can of narcissism.

His sarcasm is his smile eating the pretend innocence of his face.
He points his finger,
The digits of an authoritarian gun in his personal NRA.
