Amid Iraq Crisis, Kerry Recites Poetry
The Daily Caller ^ | 06-13-2014

Posted on 06/13/2014 11:31:13 PM PDT by Kevin in California

Jihadis are advancing on Baghdad, and yet the nation’s foreign policy chief today flew to London for the chance to recite a poem by Maya Angelou.

“Out of the huts of history’s shame / I rise / Up from a past that’s rooted in pain / I rise,” Secretary of State John Kerry intoned at the “Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.”


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS:
Just when you thought you had heard it all with this corrupt administration, you get this.

So glad you're doing your job LURCH while Iraq burns. Where's numbnuts? Playing golf again?

Not his fault. Our hero sustained brain damage during the Vietnam war when a bag of rice fragged his ass.

That’s the magic of the Obama administration...

revealing he should pick a poem that mentions huts, since he hid in one most of the time he was in ‘Nam.

Was he using his “black” accent?

“I rise, I rise, I rise.”

That was in a movie about a black beauty parlor with Alfre Woodard, Queen Latifah and Alicia Silverstone.

I hear a dog bark in the night.
I ask myself “Do he bite?”
Kill my landlord.

A man who was steering a yacht,

His course through the water forgacht,

And he stuck in the mud

With a dull, sickening thud.
And the captain then swore a whole lacht.

Actually, I think I would be more inclined to equate Nero with the Obungler, but that is a good question.

We need to stop restricting ourselves to “foreign” policy and expand it to a more inclusive “cosmic extraterrestrial” policy. The better “to serve man” (yikes, how sexist):

Out of the butt of history’s end, I soar;

cuz of the speech of dear leader, you snore.

Yet want I more.

At this point what exactly does it matter?

if the sec-state be the mad hatter,

or some eternal juvenile, to serve a boy king,

who has a thing

for stiff shafts, and half

a day’s work for two days pay?

Kill your landlord. Kill your landlord.

There are no borders, just

opportunities to rise, to rise,

surprise, we’re here.

You’re queer? That’s good, except

in the hood, the blessed hood

from whence my master came

and where he shall return

when my own funeral urn

is on Nantucket.

Aah ____ .

There once was a girl from Baghdad,
Because of Isis was about to be had,
But there was a noble lad,
And she was so glad,
'Cause the al-Qaedas were beheadingly mad...

Slip in window, break his neck,
then his house I start to wreck,
got no reason ... what the heck!
kill my landlord, kill my landlord,
C-I-L-L my landlord.

What a colossal idiot. The poet-warior speaks. Thousands, perhaps millions, will be killed because of these fools and all he can do is mouth words of another fool.

There once was a Senator from Nantucket
Who in the midst of a crisis said “fu** it.”
He would sail all the day,
With his boss golf he’d play,
And to his country he would say “suck it.”

Kerry’s always been too nuanced and sophisticated for us peasants to understand.
