The Economic Patriot

 .
 .
An economic patriot
Is what I want to be:
I vote Obama’s party line
 .
And when the doctor says I need
A colonoscopy,
Obama and the bureaucrats
 .
Or if I give him loads of cash,
His henchman have agreed,
My solar-power business loans
 .
For those who have the cash to give,
Donations are the key:
They buy the right to harvest from
Obama’s money tree.
 .
For those who have no cash to give,
For patriots like me,
Our vote is all we need to yield
To get more stuff for free.

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.
