If I Were Barack Obama
If Fred Astaire were Gene Kelly he would be stubby,
Clumsy, athletically awkward.
If I were Barack Obama I would be telling lies for the fun
Taking no responsibility for lost jobs
Discovering that my nose was as long as Pinocchio’s.
Where are the bowling lanes in Iraq?
Our heads are striking terror in our cowardly hearts.
If you were me you would no longer be defending Barack
With Democratic fibs like partisan figs,
If I had tap shoes I would have no idea of how to tap dance?
If Obama had the presidential gavel he would still not be emphatic.
In the Illinois Senate Obama always said that he was present.
He wasn’t then.
He isn’t now.
He is on some distant golf course dropping a Titleist out of his cuff
Onto a new lie.
