The Week that Was


To make sense
Of the week’s events
I like to do my part
But thinking of
The week that was
I don’t know where to start

The debt is not
A short term threat
The President opined
So much so that
The sum we owe
Has sort of slipped his mind

Well if you have a master plan
I think that you should go for it
But when you spend a trillion bucks
You should have stuff to show for it

Unemployment’s stuck on eight
We’re now a food stamp nation
His major disappointment though?
Too little immigration
 
His treatment of some
Heads of state
Has made observers irate
Instead of meeting  face to face
He’s talking like a pirate
 
Romney may seem cautious
Speak while sitting on the fence
But sound bites from the White House
Simply don’t make any sense

Every politician has
A trust side and a doubt side
But few express
An eagerness
To change things from the outside

Chicago politicians caved
And teachers stopped their strike
Free speech is protected
That’s if it’s speech we like

But nothing mentioned heretofore
Upstaged the main event
A fact that may be noticed
By the 53 per cent

Our embassies are under siege
Our safe houses are burning
He said he had a lot to learn
I guess that he’s still learning
