Treasure Island

Joe Rosochacki


When the Nazis sent an ultimatum, WW II,
to the Allies and particularly to the US Army,
In the middle of the Battle of the Bulge,
the Americans replied “NUTS”.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, when he thought the microphone was ‘cold” on FOX TV,
Said that he would castrate Obama no ifs and or buts.
Jackson said, or perceived,
that Barack was cutting down Black People,
By emphasizing, on Father’s Day,
that more fathers should be in their children’s lives,
More fathers should be at church with wives.
How demoralizing is that?
The Rev. Jesse Jackson had a “love child” out side of his marriage,
Did he forget already?
If that ain’t the pot calling the kettle black (or in Barack’s case not black enough) ?
What gives?
Rev. Jackson had accompanied Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to the road for racial equality,
The late Dr. would be most likely proud of the fact his “dream”, however impeded,
Has in a way become reality.
Did he forget already?
The Rev. Jesse Jackson’s comment was so lewd,
In an interview with The Associated Press earlier Wednesday, Jackson said he didn't remember his exact words, but said he was 'very sorry.' He told CNN the remark was 'regretfully crude.'
His attack was attacked by his own offspring, the US Representative Jesse Jackson Jr.,
Who did not hold his father’s comments dear,
His son, Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., said he was disappointed by his father’s “reckless statements.” “His divisive and demeaning comments about the presumptive Democratic nominee — and I believe the next president of the United States — contradict his inspiring and courageous career, ”…….
'Reverend Jackson is my dad and I'll always love him. He should know how hard that I've worked for the last year and a half as a national co-chair of Barack Obama's presidential campaign. So, I thoroughly reject and repudiate his ugly rhetoric. He should keep hope alive and any personal attacks and insults to himself.'
If Rev. Jackson wanted to make fire where it isn’t,
to make him the controversy,
The headlines focused upon him,
he made it so for at least until the election.
He is a media “gas bag”,
in the end Barack has gained,
By Jesse’s espousing the negatives,
As Bill had done for his wife,
the opposite effect had occurred, by their tirades,
As far as his “gas bagging” is concerned,
the Rev. should try a mouthful of Rolaids.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
