If 'bam get's reelected, will we host another extravaganza? Will we have another poet reciting verse.
In case you forgot:
Well, this time, let's give somebody else a turn at the podium.
I nominate Snoop Dogg:
Feel free to nominate your favorite poet for this gig.
H's the only one who won't say anything completely stupid!
If Bam wins, the poet laureate is likely to be Zawahiri. Or Ahmadinejad.
Tupak! Yeah. I didn’t consider him because he’s dead.
Of course that makes his work especially valuable. I’m waiting for Sothebys to auction his manuscripts. I’m assuming of course, that he could write them.
Since this is a special occasion maybe Obama will bring him back. If anybody could he could.
I do not appreciate
Their poetry sucks
Too bad Langston Hughes is no longer with us. If he were, he would undoubtedly be Obama’s first choice to be poet laureate.
PUT ONE MORE S IN THE USA
Oh, the bankers they all are planning
For another great big war.
To make them rich from the workers’ dead,
That’s all that war is for.
So if you don’t want to see bullets holding sway
Then come on, all you workers,
And join our fight today.
Put one more S in the U.S.A.
To make it Soviet.
One more S in the U.S.A.
Oh, we’ll live to see it yet.
When the land belongs to the farmers
And the factories to the working men,
The U.S.A. when we take control
Will be the U.S.S.A. then.
But we can’t join hands together
So long as whites are lynching black,
So black and white in one union fight
And get on the right track.
By Texas, or Georgia, or Alabama leg
Come together, fellow workers
Black and white can all be red:
Put one more S in U.S.A
That’s almost as good as 0bama’s poetry.
