Obama is A Miracle of Failure

Obama is a miracle of failure in a wonderment of dust.

Arrogance is his name.

He is a borrowed moment from someone else’s life.

A better person’s.

Not a speech.

 

After 9/11 what idiot would vote a politician with a Muslim

Dad into the presidency.

 

The bones of jihad do not sparks of voting make.

Narcissism is love replacing self-hatred out of a compulsion

To be grander than a baby grand piano.

The keys are broken.

The music dribbles into the failure of liberal tunes.

 

He is killing us with sincere ignorance

While the youth vote for his continuance

No matter how they are knocked down.

They earn less.

They vote for him more.

 

Bigots love him because it gives them a chance to hold onto

An imaginary fool in Hawaiian swim fins.

A pot head as a student

And a kid whose grades never show up.

No job man.

 

Obama worked as an embarrassment—

A community organizer involved with Acorn.

Ruined our health care,

Our military,

Our economy,

Our moral values,

Our lives thrown into the pits with the missing snakes.

 

The Quinnipiac pole rates him as the worst president

Since World War II.

That’s generous.

He is the worst of the worst in Ever Everland.

He is the permanence of failure.

Like Tinkerbelle he is a fairy with broken wings.

He is the Mt. Rushmore of misdirection.

 

He is what should make his supporters want to kill themselves

If they were only like the Scarecrow and had a brain.

My proudest moment was when I didn’t vote for him.

 

I was the Tin Man and turned away from the bathos

Of empathetic dummies

Like a squeaky arm on a bath tub dummy.

 

Obama is the Cowardly Lion drawing red lines that he is afraid

To protect.

 

He is the Wicked Witch of ideology without the pragmatism

Of a troop of flying monkeys.

 

He makes Harvard look dumb.

The ideational reprieve of a President is higher education’s failure.

 

I once taught at the college level.

It embarrasses me more than the two years I did in jail.
