When President O

When President O stands up and speaks

A thousand eagles ope their beaks

When President O sits down and thinks

A thousand hacks go out for drinks

When President O gets off a plane

The coasts break out their best champagne

When President O turns on the charm

The Midwest wants to buy the farm

When President O removes his tie

The press corps all goes Ay yi yi

When President O does live TV

The talking heads go Wee wee wee

When President O says lengthy words

The red states flip their lids and birds

When President O says YES WE CAN

The blue states holler WHO’S THE MAN

When President O wakes up at five

The godless left says Christ alive!

When President O beds down at one

The Christian Right says Git-R-Done!

When President O goes out to dance

All nations sigh in sheer O-mance

When President O stays in to read

The U.S. wonders: O, indeed?

2015 Addendum

When President O deploys a drone

Explosives chew up flesh and bone

When President O approves some spies

Devices grow more ears and eyes

When President O concludes his term

His haters all will writhe and squirm

When President O departs D.C.

Then President Hill can say YAY ME

2017 Correction

When President O said I’M WITH HER

The Great Unwashed did not concur

When President O retired at last

The U.S.A. turned fascist fast
