In Bush's Washington - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Frankly speaking
An anomaly
In Bush’s Washington

Frankly speaking
More likely a homily
In Bush’s Washington

Spin, and untruths
Undemocratically prevalent
In Bush’s Washington

What we get
Most usually malevolent
In Bush’s Washington


Surveillance of private data
Might be here to stay
In Bush’s Washington

Our Constitution hurts
Each time he has his way
In Bush’s Washington

At home, our liberties erode
As freedom overseas he preaches
In Bush’s Washington

Our Forefathers weep
At his flagrant over-reaches
In Bush’s Washington
