The Jordanian Pilot

The Jordanian Pilot


Pick up sticks, you f…en pr..ks,

You burn a live, livable man to death in a cage

And show him off like torture is all the rage.


Maybe some of our joke waterboarding

Could have put him out.

The liberals shed tears for a dunk.

Ya thunk, they might mourn a man on fire.

Progressives make me sick and tired.


A brave Jordanian pilot becomes charcoal

While our cowardly president

Lets terrorists pass Gitmo and Go like in Monopoly


Then cowers beneath the Oval Office desk

And blesses Muslims like they are peaceful,

The best,

And brags about how he loved the sunset call

To prayer at the mosque.


Obama  won’t name Radical Islam

Because naming is definition and he doesn’t want

To be named an accidental traitor


Or on purpose or with devious intention;

Doesn’t matter

He is the Mad Hatter running from the Queen of Hearts

Who he won’t admit decapitates us while


Obama eats tarts in the White House and feeds the poor

Food stamps that he steals from people with earned envelopes

And real jobs.


Back to the Jordanian pilot.

Obama pretended he ended the war in Iraq by pulling out

The troops which opened the door for Isis

And closed the fiery cage on Maaz al-Kassasbeh.

Our President fails us each and every day.

Obama’s fiery rhetoric is the match that lights the pilot

On fire.

He inspires the enemy and executive orders us to death.

We don’t want speeches but the pilot’s breath back in this world.
