Rhymes on Newswotrthy Times Obama's West Point Retreat

 West Point Commencement Obama Speech Pax Americana R.I.P.
The commencement at West Point could be this nation’s watershed
A pull back for a nation which in time of trouble has usually from the front led
The thin gray line of cadets now were informed
A new sense of isolationism may have been reborn
The Eagle is coming home; its leadership of the free world it now will yield
A new test-- "We must not create more enemies than we take off the battlefield”
War is brutal, collateral damage on the battlefield will often reign
Wounded or dead foes and terrorists have parents, sons and daughters number of enemies should gain
A vacuum is being created before our very eyes
China, Russia, jihadists, Iran will rejoice over the Eagle’s demise
The world will be a more dangerous place if we wait for our allies
Maybe Pax Americana has now finally set
Foes will attack without regret
Just as well as our military is being cut to its very bone
And our VA’s treatment of our vets is something we cannot condone
China is passing us as the number one economic power
With our spending frenzy our children’s and grandchildren’s futures are devoured
