Is it true, Is George Bush ' gonna ' run again? Satire Poetry

Updated on December 13, 2015

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Say it ' ain't 'true

I hear that George Busch is thinking he ' ought ' to run again

He say's he's the smartest of his family kin

And the other GOP candidates are lookin' pretty thin

If Trump keeps on unwinding, his hair color is ' shore ' ' gonna ' fade

He say's I ' reckon ' it's time Daddy put me in the slick GOP parade

I swear I won't say ' nothin ' about weapons of mass destruction

I'll stick to the terrorist ' killin ' our people, ' reckon ' you all could forget about the oil corruption

I ' reckon ' I still have a lot to give

My knowledge of the country and places where others live

Like Sarah Palin, I can see the ocean from my Texas ranch

I could speak Spanish like Jeb if my teacher would of given me a chance

I know a lot of people were unhappy when my Daddies money put me in the white house

He ' shore nuf ' was worried ' cos ' I was scared as a little house mouse



I ' shore ' wish Cheney could run with me today

I ' shore ' appreciated his ' bossin ' even if I had to pay

So think real hard you good ole American folk

I'll make you proud ' agin ' and that ' ain't no Bushie joke.

      Ruby,

      I am sitting here smiling at the prospect

      Of "W" back in the running, but what the heck

      If he is the smartest of his family kin

      I have no fear, he cannot win

      So let his try but in the end

      He'd Send Donald Trump into a tail spin

      He could dredge up the mud he slung at everyone else

      Cause most of it stuck to himself

      So once more let him just try

      Then like John Boehner we will see him cry

      Wow what an idea, like Sarah Palin

      He could retire on his "Super PAC"

      I love it Ruby and the funny video especially the debate where he was dumbfounded.

      Blessings and Hugs dear friend

      Hello drbj. I must admit I had a ball writing this. Poor George, I kinda felt sorry for him in the video, but it cracked me up too. All in fun! I don't know why anyone with a half of a brain would want to be president? but you're right, anyone can be president. lol. Thank you..

      You put your funny bone to work on this one, Ruby. You know what they say: the best thing about America is that anyone can be President! It is also the worst thing!

      Thanks for the chuckles, m'dear.

      Manatita, I knew what you meant and I in no way would say anything to hurt your feeling's. It was just a fun write. I know you are not political and I respect that. Sometimes I wish I wasn't either. You do not need to apologize, you did or said anything wrong. Smiling here. Best wishes my friend.

      I knew that, my Friend. While it was just meant to be a tease for good friends, I admit it did not sit right with me also. I know of your passion in these matters, and 90% of the time - even if it is coming from my best Friends - I would still refuse to enter this 'world.' My apologies here. So sorry.

      What a great sense of humor. I think G.W. should run, and keep running. He is a disgrace to his country.

      Way too funny! Love the satire/sarcasm. Can you imagine him being President again? Will Farrell just did a comedy skit on this on Saturday Night Live....very funny!

      Heaven forbid! Your humour is a good guise for the serious - I'm sure he still thinks he deserves to take an important place, as does Blair in his arrogant, self-advancing fashion. He's even worse in my opinion, as he's supposed to be intelligent; he uses his ability to deceive, wheedle with words and try to sound sincere - smarmy more like and, I think, downright dangerous.

      Great poem, Ruby!
