Where We Stand?

When G W Bush assumed the position...
He tipped us 600 bucks.

We cheered until we got sandbagged.
Tax cuts for the rich.
War on people whose land contains oil.
Welcome to authoritarianism!

"Doesn't that burning constitution
Give a warming glow to my backside?
Kissme!" he postured
as his poll numbers drooped.

He killed thousands of us.
And hundreds of thousands of them.
His pals took a balloon ride,
or three, or more, on us.

He put us in hock for 4 Trillion.

As he prepares to pass the baton
(to one that's
just more of the same)

He tips us $600 again.

  1. I am reminded of my father in his last illness, trying to find his wallet in his hospital gown so he could tip the orderlies. It seems that having women look after him was perfectly fine but to have a man help him required a tip.

    Perhaps George W.'s tip is inspired by that same deformed logic of the dying...



    Who isn't ordinarily so gloomy.
