To gain a second term, Obama
Should demonstrate we weren’t all dopes
When arguing the national trauma
Would end. He was the man our hopes
Were focused on from the beginning.
But now, approaching his ninth inning,
Were still mired in Afghanistan,
Where he’s our number one hit man.
He promised he’d restrain the bankers:
Would never suffer their increase
Of income. But his Golden Fleece
Of taxes showed us we were wankers.
Because of these, he’ll surely earn
A presidential second term.
