If Only I Were King

 .
 .
I have a plan for what to do.
It’s good, but here’s the thing:
I’d have a very different plan,
If only I were king.
 .
I’m raising taxes on the rich –
I’m sure they’ll feel the sting.
But I would raise their taxes more,
If only I were king.
.
The plan will make my union friends
Content enough to sing.
But I could make them happier,
If only I were king.
.

I’m propping up the deficit
With dollars from Beijing,
Which wouldn’t need to be repaid
If only I were king.
 .
I’ll leave the nation penniless
And hanging by a string.
But I would take it further still,
If only I were king.
.

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
