Obama Versus Putin In the Gym

A picture may be worth a 1000 words
But a video deafens any speech that might be heard
In Normandy today there is video of Obama working out
Don’t blame him to hide in the hotel gym as his domestic troubles mount
Some lifting of weights for a strong, decisive leader image to project,
As at home his foreign and domestic actions the voters condemn and reject
While his nemesis Putin nine years his senior is exercising like some god from Greece
Obama is in a hotel gym searching for the lightest weights not to increase
At least with good form but on the deltoids looking like a bird with broken wings
Wonder if replayed on Russian TV how much scorn the work out will bring
Hearken back to the images of Dukakis as Alfred E. Newman in an M-1 tank
How quickly his election chances following the photos quickly sank
Obama’s form may have been rated clearly an A-1
And the light weights, high reps is how lifting should be done
But when compares with a shirtless Putin like his red lines he looked weak
Drowning out again at Normandy what teleprompter rhetoric he might chose to speak
