Race to the Bottom

 .
Article link: Reid Raises Race
The reset button didn’t work.
The Arab Street’s aflame.
ObamaCare is off its rails.
The jobless rate’s the same.
 .
The Peeping Toms of government
Are snooping through our mail.
Michelle is pushing little kids
To feed on sprouts and kale.
 .
The IRS and FEC
Are playing off the sheet.
Our consulates and embassies
Are forced into retreat.
.

But if you deign to criticize,
The mammoth mess we’re in,
Your motive must be based upon
The color of his skin.
 .
For only willful prejudice
And bigotry of mind,
Prevents embrace of presidents
Who lead us from behind.
.

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.
