“Crocodile Tears” a poem by the Bard of Murdock

It’s Sunday and today’s poem from The Bard of Murdock reflects on the “sequester” that Obama was for before he was against it. The Bard published this poem on Saturday, February 9, 2013. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.


Crocodile Tears

The President has made it clear
That spending cuts now drawing near
Will bring corruption and decay,
And leave our land in disarray.
To which a more reflective bloke
Might ask, If we are truly broke,
What logic led us to allow
Dependence as we find it now?
And further, one must wonder why
The President would weep and cry
About a cut to be imposed,
That he himself had first proposed.
Perhaps these crocodile tears
Are for the nation he reveres.
But I would guess, as like as not,
For us he wasted not a thought.
Instead, his true absorption lies
In bringing to a swift demise
A social structure of reward
For profit gained of own accord.
And so the dole he must not slice
For voters bribed, not once but twice,
As leftist legacies depend
On freedom from constraint to spend.

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.
