The poster Deborah on the Bayside wrote a wonderful--and jolting--poem about the nature of our radical new President. It's a vision of deep foreboding, reminiscent of William Butler Yeats' masterpiece "The Second Coming." Deborah, if you don't write poetry for a living, you've missed your calling!
An Ode to Miss Sonia and Change
Obama and Osama - born worlds apart
Who exacts the greater damage --
From outside, or deep within our heart?
One smudges the alabaster's gleam
for his cause to bolster.
The other has a barrister
Double barreled in his holster.
One sends his minions onward
against the vile Great Satan.
The other appoints Miss Sonya
to brace our law and nation.
In one mouth are philippics
that would bury our institutions,
And from the other comes the word
that will bury our constitution.
Yes, Osama and Obama -- born worlds apart.
Yet how different really are their goals?
It's in method they depart.
