My Friend Voted for Obama

My Friend Voted for Obama

How much Democratic wood would a Democrat chuck in your face

If a Democrat could chuck wood?

You wouldn’t vote for Obama, would you?

You did.

Did you forget that you are a Jew who loves Israel while

You stand behind Obama

Like a shadow draped to his morning Muslim prayer?

At Obama’s speech in Cairo,

How didn’t you know what we’d be going through?

We lost six million Jews in WWII and you voted for the son of a Muslim

Who walks in the shadow of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.

Arafat’s uncle Husseini

Would be proud of his affirmative action derivative–Obama.

Oh, he’s a real charmer.

He can’t tell the truth from his nose.

We are led by Pinocchio teaching all his little wooden heads

To tangle themselves in lies.

Where have all the suicide bombers gone?

Long time passing.

Long time ago.

Not really.

When Obama first ran for office

I told you that he would destroy Israel in ten years.

It’s nip and tuck now.

He changed Bush’s surge into a self-immolating purge.

Without America’s support Israel is a Biblical story.

Iran gets bolder.

Isis gets away with murders that are colder.

When we needed your shoulder,

You turned your back on Israel in favor of the Democrats,

The liberals,

The self-hating Jews.

You are an anti-Semite who hates anti-Semites,

Not knowing that your love for your people is as dead

As the Dead Sea.

You keep studying Hebrew like you were a good Jew.

Who are you going to speak the language to when we are all dead?

Are you still proud of your voting for Obama?


You can’t admit that you were wrong because you are too busy

Feeling guilty about mistakes you didn’t make while you dismiss

Your serious destruction of your own race.

Ahmadinejad wanted to wipe Israel off the map.

You protested while you were wiping with him.

The fires are burning.

Obama is razing the Middle Class.

Perhaps he can move them to the Middle East and clap

While the men hide their women behind burqas and

Pre-med students do clitorectomies just to make

Their women a little less sexy than their cars.

In England national healthcare has death panels.

Obama mocked them.

In the Middle East he is the death panel sitting over

The desert like a solar shadow.

He laughed at Palin’s view that Russia was a threat,

Then he gave them our space program,

Handed them Syria on a red line

And implied, “The Ukraine, what me worry?”

You did vote for Obama and you are too ashamed to be ashamed.

I am trying so hard to still like you even though

You obviously don’t.

Maybe we could get together on distrusting you.

We might find some communion again in recognizing your betrayal.
