Obama Fails To Raise With Mexican President Issue Of Marine Jailed

Obama was handed an opportunity on a silver platter
To influence the course of events on something that really matters
A little one on one with his Mexican counterpart
A chance to gain a Marine's release to show he cares, has a heart
Tahmooressi did not evidently make the cut
His prison doors remain locked and shut
For a man who lives and breathes politics rather than policy at every chance
He seems clueless over the anger we feel over his freedom the President did not advance
No Taliban warriors to release only one traumatized Marine Vet
Rose Garden ceremony, rise in approval would be a sure bet
But no; did not even the question even raise or release suggest
No wonder having him as CinC makes many of us depressed
