The Puppet Show
Edgar Bergen did not take Charlie McCarthy with him
When he went to the voice in the sky,
The ventriloquist grave yard,
With his dead tonsils.
Bergen left McCarthy on the White House Stage.
Instead of throwing his dead voice over to the dimly living,
He set up a teleprompter
So the wooden head could read his thoughts.
And the Democratic Party is the speech behind Obama’s
The mantra that repeats itself in the rain
Like the onset of the flu,
Like a virus of ideological germs
Or a bacteria of Marxist failures.
Obama still points his narcissistic finger at ignorant crowds;
He still stands erect like a gay person who is proud
Of his embarrassments;
He has not yet reached the stage of Bill Clinton who carries
The weight of his ugly behavior like Atlas lifting
Monica Lewinsky on his intrusive shoulders.
Then again Clinton was a minor league sinner.
He got a little head.
His head did not fill up with himself like Obama’s.
Obama is out there playing golf while Americans are being beheaded
Because of his removal of our troops after Bush’s great surge in Iraq.
