With apologies to Emily Dickinson, author of I Never Saw a Moor
Article links: Obama flew his new bus from stop to stop; left for Camp David in a helicopter and arrived in a car
I only saw the bus,
I didn’t see the plane;
I thought he drove from here to there.
Would someone please explain?
I saw the helicopter,
I didn’t see the car;
Why does he change from here to there?
He needs a travel czar.
Obama’s travel dramas
Are curious indeed;
He must be hiding from his foes –
Or maybe Harry Reid.
I’m sure he has his reasons,
Or maybe it’s a trick;
I’m hoping in November ’12
To see his walking stick.

- My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
