Does Congress Even Matter?

The congress is camouflage for Obama’s failure.

The old faces are green, intaglio fabric.

History looks back at its Presidents

Not its congressman.


The Congress has an approval rating of 16 per cent.

Who cares?

Does a bear sh-t in the woods?

Does a congressman use donations as personal

Toilet paper?


Do we remember one congressman from Lincoln’s

Or Regan’s



Obama’s rating is 44 per cent.

Like the sun king Louis XIV he matters.

His failures are eclipses and shadows on the beach.

The plague lisps from his diction.

We will die like rats in the alley of his health care.

His foreign policy is a wasteland.


He is the light that failed,

The heat that is diminished,

A degenerate Apollo

Who uncrafted our foreign and domestic affairs.


Obama is dancing on the White House steps.

We are pieces of broken glass beneath his feet.

We need intervention from his beneficent intentions.

Let him keep his fair share for himself.

Please don’t look out for us.

Liberals blame America’s decline on the congress when

Our representatives are smudges beneath Obama’s heels.
