Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
STATE OF THE UNION
This past year has gone by in a blur
And Obama has lost his allure,
But he’s yet to be thwarted
And is just getting started:
Three more years of this glib saboteur!
From the 2009 archive:
Tis the season of change and of hope —
The kind that is real and not soap —
But, to meet your Messiah,
You will have to look higher
Than some fast-talking, power-mad dope.
To Arabian shieks he’ll kowtow,
And the Japanese emperor now,
But the one we elect
Ought to show his respect
With a handshake and never a bow.
“Let me thank every person I should,
Compliment how they did so much good,
Send a shout-out to Crow,
Make some promises — Oh,
And then mention the thing at Ft. Hood.”
Getting older, you may realize
That your waistline’s a much larger size,
But Obama’s stayed slim,
Having kept himself trim:
Let’s award him the No-Belly Prize!
ALONG CAME JONES
He played green but was red to the bones
In a White House chockfull of his clones.
It is good that Van goes
And the public now knows
What to make of the man who hired Jones.
“We misread what the candidate’s ‘change’ meant
And rejected the prior arrangement;
Having now had our fill
Of this radical’s swill,
We are feeling a growing estrangement.”
“We would never overtly deny
Any care we’re prepared to supply;
If we do have to ration,
With a practiced compassion
We’ll decide who deserves most to die.”
If your neighbor had something to dish, he
May regret what he said and now wish he
Had not spilled his gut
And had kept his mouth shut —
If the thing that he said sounded fishy.
Take a crony-claimed “stimulus” stash
And an influx of overseas cash
(Use to cover expenses);
Add an ACORN-cooked census
For an edge in the 2012 clash.
While we hang on his every last word,
Mesmerized by the mishmash we’ve heard,
What the dummy should say
And our president’s Mortimer Snerd.
Some magicians do mental spoon-bending
Or assistants in mid-air suspending,
But Barack has a trick
That is even more slick:
He can balance a budget by spending!
They have money to disburse
That they’ve taken from our purse:
Those who made the big mess,
Turning more into less,
Will now solve it by making it worse.
BROKE BARACK MOUNTAIN
From Obama, just what will we get?
In his first year: a mountain of debt,
Mounds of scandal and porn,
Mounds of babies unborn!
And we haven’t seen anything yet!
“Gee, I thought that Obama brought hope,
Not a trip down the slippery slope.
Now I see that his change
Is a kind that is strange,
And I feel like a big, stupid dope!”
BARACK AROUND THE CLOCK
Get ready, Blogger Nation,
For the pettifog-oration:
Cue the abstractions
And the cultic reactions!
It’s Obama’s inauguration!
Last week’s limerick:
“With security lapses reviewed
On Flight 253, we conclude:
Due to differing beliefs
About bombs in one’s briefs,
Every passenger now must fly nude.”
