Yemen Ally Resigns Obama Cuts Short Sightseeing To Go To Saudi Arabia

Once more in foreign policy this administration is scrambling to react
Wishing a statement made 90 days ago Obama could erase and retract
Like the jayvees analogy on ISIS Obama on Yemen was all smiles
Touting Yemen was a success against terror when all the while
It was a ticking time bomb with an Iranian controlled fuse
When it comes to foreign policy this administration always seems to lose
Another “ally” in the Middle East steps down
Arabs shaking their heads wondering what is the next act of the Obama clown
Yemen is no longer a success; the war on terror is in tatters
It is like facing in ninth inning an 0 and 2 count 2 out bases empty down by 10 with your ninth place batter
At least after the Paris no show miscue
A decision the administration now rues
Obama will cancel his sightseeing visit to the Taj Mahal
His trip of condolences to Saudi Arabia he will not forestall
