Rock Obama, Rock (a poem)

Rock Obama, rock Obama, rock Obama, rock.

Hillary and Billary, keep your eyes on the ticking clock.

Lovely Johnnie comb and spray your glistening golden hair.

Is there a serious Democrat contender anywhere?  Anywhere?

 

Fast-fading semi-stars of yore should bow out and leave the way

Clear for whomever can be found to plunge into their party’s fray.

But if no one new comes forward to challenge the current stock,

Rock Obama, rock Obama, rock Obama, rock…

Rock Obama, rock Obama, rock Obama, rock.

Hillary and Billary, keep your eyes on the ticking clock.

Lovely Johnnie comb and spray your glistening golden hair.

Is there a serious Democrat contender anywhere?  Anywhere?

 

Fast-fading semi-stars of yore should bow out and leave the way

Clear for whomever can be found to plunge into their party’s fray.

But if no one new comes forward to challenge the current stock,

Rock Obama, rock Obama, rock Obama, rock…
