Private Sector’s Doing Fine

I’m not going to have time to cut a video of this and push to YouTube, alas:

Private Sector’s Doing Fine

“Private sector’s doing fine,”
said the Prez ‘midst quaffs of Coke.
Snorted he: “Bitter cling-ons

“Will fires of racism stoke,
and with extremists entwine,
’til Hope and Change on them dawns.

“Economy? I awoke
it from richest dreams, with yawns,
#Occupied by sweetest wine.

“Aren’t we a nation of Jonhs?
(If  I may Edwards invoke,
shafting him while I get mine.)

“Wasting too much on our lawns,
altered from natural pine,
as though ‘Gaia’ were some joke.

“It doesn’t take an Einstein
to free Capitalist pawns
and part Hayeckian smoke:

“We must seek fairness divine,
and the choom of justice toke,
thumbing Tea Party morons.

    The Prez doesn’t quaff Coke. He snorted it.

    Poetic license, DaveO.

    Smitty, it’s prolly better that you don’t have time to cut and push that up. If you would prolly be the winner of one Secret Service rendition to the Hague for crime against humanity as well as any number of things they might discover from your time on the Afghan seas.

    Another winner.

    And on the subject of doing fine.

    True enough. Nothing like reading the Prez’s autobiographies to the SS to clear a man’s sinuses.

    A recession is when your neighbor loses his job.
    A depression is when you lose yours.
    A recovery is when Barack Obama loses his.

     Dude, poetry is all about literary devices.  Sometimes they are as blunt as a sledgehammer, sometimes they are as subtle as a gentle breeze.  But you can never just take one line in isolation – for instance:

    said the Prez ‘midst quaffs of Coke.
    Snorted he …

    See what he did there?

    I understand that the Cosmos had to bring devastation for the election of Obama, things must be in balance in the universe.  It’s just too bad that so many innocents must suffer with the dunderheads who put him in office.

    It has always been thus. Perhaps, and this is more along the lines of a pipe dream, Mittens, on the off chance he wins, will do something to end the leftwing FedGov Gravy Train.
