State of the Union: A Limerick

There once was a president from Texas
Who from the start seemed certain to vex us.
Compassion he called for.
But instead he brought global war,
And built up the military industry complexes.

On the issue of extreme global warming
In the wake of Katrina’s fierce storming
How could oil profits be saved
While feigning the action all craved?
You could see in his mind a cloud forming

Disregarding the warnings of science
In ignorance he placed his reliance.
With his head in the sand
While global emissions expand
He holds progress back with defiance.

So what of the union’s true state
As Bush pushes yet another rebate?
Do you feel more secure now?
Are we on the right track now?
Will your grandchildren welcome their fate?

-- Ned Stowe, FCNL

DID YOU HEAR WHAT BUSH CALLED US REGARDING THE REBATES. HE SAID HE WANTED TO GET THE MONEY IN THE HANDS OF THE CONSUMERS ASAP. CONSUMERS ???????? YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, THAT'S ALL ARE TO THESE PEOPLE. WE ARE NOT AMERICANS, WE ARE NOT MEMBERS OF A DEMOCRACY, WE ARE CONSUMERS WITH THE SOLE PURPOSE OF SPENDING MONEY SO BIG CORPORATIONS, BUSH'S BUDDIES CAN GET RICH OFF OF US.

Woe to us with big capitalism
which feeds off misfortune and schism
individual's need
can't match corporate greed
don't bend over for Dick Cheneyism.

With post Twin Towers stock market drop.
Our leaders just told us to shop
thus, confront the worlds ills
with trinkets and pills
so say Dick, and the president fop
