Ode to Uncle Sam
Fat delinquent adolescent
Its good that you’ve shown us
You are growing, you are a young adult
This time you did things with no fuss
And that for the inebriate kid you are
Is no mean achievement, ha ha ha!
There were times kid
You disgusted the world proper
Hoodwinked many with good but secrets hid
Neutralized many leaving others cower
At the power of your arms and
Your dollar, the necessary devil.
Embodied in you were all evils
Racism, greed, cultural imperialism
Insolent pride, treachery, blah blah blah!
You were an evil doer of sorts- aagh!
But kid, this time round
With your 44th president’s election
You have made the world proud
At least there is hope for a better world.
But will he kid, this president of yours
Be unlike the many before him
Do the right thing and not
Steal peoples oil, gold and what not
Fatten you with stolen treasures?
Let’s hope so!
