ODE TO DECEIT

OBAMA: PROFILE IN DUPLICITY

We asked for Superman and got Soupy Sales instead.


AN ODE TO DECEIT

Right wing Barack

Smacked us with a rock.

But he opened our eyes

With his numerous lies.

*

He struck again with ominous stones.

To cause us all so many groans.

The lies came double

Creating more trouble

*

With rocks and stones his policies bear

As he streams along an a right wing tear.

Over campaign promises he glossed

As unexpectedly he tossed

*

Out into the lonely street

Without ever missing a beat

Millions who were foreclosed

And from their homes they were deposed.

*

With rocks and stones his policies come

While on a fiddle he would strum.

As unemployment reached sky high

He scurried for safety in a lie.

*

He called the deficit a financial harm

While jobs were lost with fearsome alarm

But from the White House came no word

As the president joined the DC herd.

*

Fool me twice the fault is mine.

When time to vote I will decline.

*

Yet he openly proposed

And with the rest of us disposed

A plan to save the guilty banks

Which were nothing more than crooked skanks.

*

His agenda for the few

Left us all in a royal stew

About a budget for his cash cow crew

With whom he shared a dinner brew

*

To raise money for his campaign race

Against Republicans he would surely face.

And in the White House he would assure

That all their troubles he would cure.

*

And so his soul that day they bought

While what he promised came to naught.

He chips instead at his loyal flock

With a budget that’s a royal crock.

*

Now a man without a care

He lures us to his right wing lair

And with an uppity unctuous flair

He drives us all to utter despair

*

Fool me twice the fault is mine.

When time to vote I will decline.

*

A profile in transparent deceit

He brandishes Washington conceit.

But this man is no DC fool

For he cares not of actions cruel.

*

He will cut the safety net

To assure a winning bet.

So what if seniors must eat gruel

He will remain a rich man’s tool.

*

No one expected he’d be a saint

But now we see a right wing taint.

With glossy cover he tries paint

Himself a weak deal maker but ain’t

*

He plies excuses near and far.

But by duplicity he cannot bar

Us from seeing his flimsy guise

To which we are now all too wise.

*

Fool me twice the fault is mine

When time to vote I will decline.

*

For his policy is replete

With breaks for those who cheat.

And time again he will repeat

Mistakes that will end in his defeat.

*

And so he governs without remorse

On a strictly right wing course.

With the wealthy at his side

He speaks of plans we can’t abide.

*

His blatant plan to triangulate

Succeeds because he will not stipulate

The devices by which he wily rules

As with relish he takes us for fools.

*

So with right wing views he often conflates

While the rest of us he quickly deflates.

He now approaches nut job status

As with hard right plans he comes right at us.

*

Fool me twice the fault is mine

When time to vote I will decline.
