It’s Sunday and today’s poem by The Bard of Murdock satirizes Obama’s “free stuff”, which isn’t free. He originally published this poem on Saturday, September 29, 2012. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.
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
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.
