***************************

Fiat Lux!

*
“Let there be light!” declared the Lord.
And so it came to be.
Much like Obama promised us
A new transparency.
*
“Let there be firmament above!”
And so it came to be.
Just like Obamacare provides
A shield for you and me.
*
“Let water gather in its place,
And earth display its form!”
Just like the way Obama made
The One Percent reform.
*
“Let there be lights above the skies
To mark the days and nights!”
Much like the beacon that Barack
Has shined on civil rights.
*
“Let creatures swarm amidst the seas,
And birds above the earth!”
Just like the new technologies
To which Barack gave birth.
*
“Let Adam be, and with him Eve,
And let them procreate!”
Just like Obama’s policies
Expand the welfare state.
*
The seventh day was set aside
For God and man to rest.
And contemplate the President
By whom we have been blessed.
*

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.
