Two Men Named Obama

There once was a man named Obama

Who forgot essentials taught by his mama.

To his wife and child said, “See ya!”

And went back to Kenya.

His child raised partly by Grandma.

Now there’s a Pres. named Obama.

Who seems to forget his own mama.

He honors his dad

(Who it turned out was a cad)

To draw more votes from Alabama.

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

This may be a limerick but is lacking in intelligence. Sorry.

Just because you may disagree politically, personal attacks are inappropriate.

you sir, tell the truth, although the radical left will not see it that way. Yep, Yep.

Clever way of putting it. Was never really for or against Obama. I know I would like to see someone else in the chair now.

Sorry Gypsy, you and the rest of us will have to wait until next year (at the earliest) though some presidents have turned themselves around in a second term. I think it's sad that the president is metis and ignores that part of his heritage to emphasize his African heritage for apparent political advantage while ignoring who "brung him up."
