Song: What Happened Obama?

MIC = Military/Industrial Complex


So what happened Obama, to your role in the drama,
I don't mean to alarm ya, but the play is the same!
Do you live for the glamour of well composed grammar,
An actor or mummer and a shill for the game?

Obama! Oh bummer!
Are we just getting dumber?
With Geithner and Summers,
Bernanke and crew.
Obama! Oh bummer!
You know I'm just getting numb-er,
To the glib green shoot fictions,
And the whole toxic brew!

What happened Obama, to your role in the drama,
Projecting Osama's, new theatres of war?
By what kind of karma,
Do you need all that armour;
Do your MIC masters lobby for more?

What happened Obama, to your role in the drama,
Why let Big Pharma control your 'reform'?
Another pretender with a corporate agenda,
It's business as usual, where greed is the norm!

What happened Obama, to your role in the drama,
Will they give you an Oscar, if performance is lame?
What happened Obama, for you were such a charmer,
In the sickening miasma of media acclaim!

What happened Obama?
Do you think you are Rama?
Of perfect adherence,
To a virtuous law.
What happened Obama,
On your pathways of dharma?
Why run interference,
For the righteous and poor?

Obama! Oh bummer!
In their gas guzzling Hummers,
The tea-baggers clamour,
And call for your head.
Obama! Oh bummer!
Like a black 'Joe, the plumber'.
A straw man and drummer,
For the new fascist cred!

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
