State of the Union: A Limerick
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?
