Raft Getting Crowded As Blues Jump Ship

The Obama ship of state at long last is hitting the reality reefs
Of a president elected not because of talent only color whose tenure should have been more brief
His own party turned on him today in his trade bill seeking vote
His legacy ACA, his Supreme Court bashing notwithstanding, may no longer float
A disaster on his term as CinC as radical Islam which he cannot even pronounce
Worse the concept of a War on Radical Islam he continues to renounce
Hooray for us who wanted to believe and  swallowed the bait of hope and change
Eyes maybe from racial guilt ignored the agenda of a nation he wished to rearrange
But shame on us and especially on the Candy Crowleys of the far too liberal press
To reelect an incompetent who if not golfing has watched this nation’s role regress
His party is now from him in a major bail
Like us unable to pick an area where he has not failed
As we head into the 18 months of lame duck status with the ship of duck
Adrift at sea with any feathers of redirection long since plucked
A collective prayer that the forces of Putin, China, and radical Islamic jihad
Somehow do not take advantage of a presidency and a personality totally flawed. © June 12, 2015 Michael P. Ridley aka the Alaskanpoet
