Ibrahim Ibn Salma


Casting Obama


They contrive an upheaval
Of a non-existing character -
For character assassination,

They create a bobble-head that
Looks like him
On an empty chair,

They publish his alien
Birth place that
Never was,

They call him a crooked socialist who
Saves banks and Wall Street,
A job killer who rescues GM,
A terrorist sympathizer who kills Osama,

They knot him, stitch him,
Loop him, bounce him
On a trampoline

They shape him as
An actor in their private movie,
Authenticating their own aspersions.
