Lessons From A Dead World: 1. Obama's Legacy - Poem by Dave SmithWhite

Take my advice:
The best way soonest,
To possess it all,
Is as an opportunist!
For you, expediency,
Seems made to measure.
To fool the world,
There's a simple trick:
You must tell lies,
And make them stick!
Assert a pert,
Strategic pressure.
And tell the people,
Both near and far,
You war for peace,
And who you are!

There's no one in the world like you.
No bolts of lightning hurled,
By the jealous gods, unfurled
Or flying flags of churlish disposition.
From their starry gates of pearl,
They fume in futile swirl.
There's no other shill like you,
In your position.

There's no one in the land like you.
No one who understands,
The pressures and demands,
That lying makes on candid politicians.
There's no one in the land like you.
But now you're in command,
Can you break the mould or brand,
Build on rock, not sand,
And rule with vision?
