Open Limerick To President Obama

Open Limerick To President Obama
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Obama, I’m shocked and appalled
By your deal-making prowess (so-called).
You could turn a royal flush
Into leftover mush.
Your message? “I love being mauled.”

    Yeah, I like the way this reads! I had Obama in mind for my political Nursery Rhyme today but ended up with Gadaffi.

    Don’t we all…?

    Yeah, a lot of us bleeding hearts are finding the Presidents’ glow wearing off a bit. I’m still hoping he’ll pull a rabbit out of this hat and nail those republican bastards. He’s still better than Bush.

    Sadly true, and written with your usual wit and talent in making the words fit together! I love your limericks and your amazing ability to form them on just about any topic one can think of! I wonder, do they bounce around in your head all day long, or do you sit and ponder to create them? Great contribution to Write A Letter Wednesday, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks so much, Josie! In answer to your question, it’s a little of both. Sometimes I can’t stop my brain from creating limericks. And other times, I have to focus much more. Of course with political limericks, I have to keep feeding my brain info about the news, in order to write them.

    It doesn’t sound like you will vote for him again. ;)

    Amanda, I have every confidence that Republicans will manage to pick a nominee who’s infinitely worse, giving me the usual no choice. :)
