Poem: An Ode To Sarah Palin

George Bush displays a serious lack of intelligence and curiosity of thought. He has met his match.

An Ode To Sarah Palin

Behold a great emptiness of certain display
It knows very little in fullest array
Taking pride in what’s simple, yet it simply falls short
Slow to all answers or well-thought retort
An agent of change … Ha! A wolf of the same
Preacher of values? More conniving a game
Speaketh in tongues; a fanatical fool
Of intelligent discourse? Avoidance her rule
The true bridge to nowhere is the path we’d be led
A road to more ruin inextricably wed
Of moose and of hockey and of frightening belief
After eight years ‘a moron, more a brain’d be relief
Too close to the trigger … or be named her next son?!
Another dolt near the White House and any hope is undone
With resounding rejection, pray the verdict be weighed
Crawling back to Wasilla where she first should have stayed

And in Sarah's own words: "That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, were ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health-care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping the - it's got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health-care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that." *

Now THAT was really something! I’m delighted to happen upon your well conceived and crafted ‘ode’ in the OSI feed. Would that McCain and others return to their senses and SEE the ‘folly’ they have wrought and may common sense return to our nation’s electorate … in time for the change we need.
Hugs and blessings,
