Tomorrow's a big day. No, I'm not talking about the State of the Union address. I'm referring to the 3rd anniversary of
Dubya's Dayly Diary. Yes, I launched it on the very black day that George Dubya Bush took office: January 20, 2001. I thought I'd celebrate -- okay celebrate's not exactly the right word -- with a poem. I hope you'll enjoy Dubya's Poetic Injustice.
A humble foreign policy,
Bush promised way back when.
Then wages war preemptively.
For bloodshed Dubya yens.
Bush said that's what he'd be.
Then saves all his compassion for
Big biz and industry.
Dub pushes No Child Left Behind
To help improve our schools.
Then traps them in a money bind,
Cash drained and strapped by rules.
Bush said he'd cut our Fed tax bill,
So we could keep our cash.
Then slashes taxes for the rich,
So they can grow their stash.
Bush praises Martin Luther King,
The king of civil rights.
Then elevates Charles Pickering,
Who'd give our rights last rites.
Environmental care he takes
Throughout his Crawford land.
While giving bz polluting pals
A crackdown on big business thieves
Bush promised on Wall Street.
Then undermines the SEC,
Leaves cronies free to cheat.
Bush says jobs are a major goal
For our economy.
Alas, they're in a deep black hole
With our democracy.
