Ode to W

I'm going to step way out on a branch

And tell the President I'll bet the ranch

On his job as a leader in war and peace.

I don't care how the polls inflate or decrease

Their trumped up numbers, their attempted coups.

Real Americans are on to their rusty ruse

From the ancient playbook they always use

To again and again distort the news.

 

George W. Bush is a savvy guy.

He doesn't spout rhetoric telling malcontents why

He takes tough stands whether or not they agree.

(Sounds rather like Ronaldus Magnus to me!)

He'll take all the heat they can generate.

He doesn't need their input to make him great.

 

He knows who he is, doesn't need identification,

Swats away like gnat nips their vilification.

An American cowboy, and I'm proud to say,

I'll bet on his presidency any day!
