With a Little Help from Allah

by | Mar 18, 2021 | Political

[Note of 3/17/21, of course I’m referring to Barry Sotero, otherwise known
as Obama. I actually voted for him the first time; but I soon learned to
loathe him, eventually realized it was wasted energy. I did, however, judge
the way he’d refer to us ‘Deplorables’ as ‘folks.’ I’m not sure why it hit
me the way that it did but it was like a way of dismissing us to the base
of the pyramid. With the exposure of everything we’ve come to learn the
last 4 years it has become obvious that that is how 99% of us have been
viewed. This poem could have been written for this current pandemic.
Maybe that one was just a dress rehearsal.

Ebola a blessing
For the executive in charge
A pandemic in progress
In the nation at large

Allah answered his prayers
To give him control
FEMA centers will bustle
With verdant sick souls

An actor on stage
Cannot hold a candle to him
The look of great sadness
All hiding a grin

Two steps from a chip (*1)
Is how it all looks
A pandemic in action
Martial Law on the books

Alexandria, Jena
And Pollock (*2) it seems
Receiving shipments to house
Providing quarantine means

The economy’s gone
To the dogs, it would seem
But, no one will notice
As each one turns green

A solution exists
For each problem he has
Each one seems worse
Then the last one to pass

Tax dollars are flying
From the window, it’s true
Seems with the man of disaster
We’ll never be through

We don’t want him martyred
Cause each road and each bridge
Would carry his name
And would eternity live

The most we could hope for
He’d too catch this plague
Then he’d have an excuse
For being uncommitted and vague.



(*1) Once enough people have contracted Ebola there will be a magic serum
which the great wizard will declare we must all get. In order to assure
that we all comply, since we will be under Martial Law and as such will
have our Civil Rights suspended, he will see that along with inoculation we
will get a tracking device that will also help determine our worth. It
will be connected to everything that carries our social security number.

(*2) Louisiana, every state has their own. The number of FEMA encampments
are 800 nationwide. . .the number rumored to be.
