The Daily Poetry Movement

Today I bring you antipoetry of the foulest swamp filth. The two poets are the most evil of nature and the most prompting of illeteracy. They have banned poetry readings from their house, they have exiled poets from their quaters, they are more akin to farenheit 451 than to likes of greatness. Of whom do I speak? I speak of George and Laura Bush. Hiss! Booooo! Hissssss! Boooo! The fisrt poem Laura reputed to have been by her husband. Posted to the whitehouese site it was 1984'd after she admitted she had "joked" aka lied. Resist!
George Bush writes a poem... nope it was a lie too... Here is the poem Laura Bush attributed to her husband:

From the official Whitehouse website before it was 1984'd:

We delight in great works of literature and especially in the works of budding new artists. President Bush is a great leader and husband - but I bet you didn't know, he is also quite the poet. Upon returning home last night from my long trip, I found a lovely poem waiting for me. Normally, I wouldn't share something so personal, but since we're celebrating great writers, I can't resist.

Dear Laura,
Roses are red, violets are blue, oh my lump in the bed, how I've missed you.
Roses are redder, bluer am I, seeing you kissed by that charming French guy.
The dogs and the cat they miss you too, Barney's still mad you dropped him, he ate your shoe.
The distance my dear has been such a barrier, next time you want an adventure, just land on a carrier.

I'm happy to be the inspiration behind this poem. Someone or something always inspires an artist and this is true for tonight's distinguished speakers. Tom Clancy started out as an insurance salesman, but always dreamed of becoming a writer. Inspired by his love of technology and the military, he started writing novels in his spare time
This is an official recount story about Laura's lie... oops I meant to say JOKE. Nope I'm lying.


So now the Whitehouse has put up a new poem by Georgie Porgie Boy. Unfortunately it is still as badly written as the first. But this one is in his handwriting. Awwww... ..
And the new official poem by Dubya:

A Birthday Poem for Pickles
By Your Hubby
Lady, I'm your night in shining armor.
And I love you.
You light up my life.
You give me home... to carry on.
I am a man who will fight for your honor.
I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of.
I could fly higher than an eagle
Because you are the wings beneath my wind.
Tonight I celebrate my love for you.
And that midnight song is gonna come shining through.
You're the meaning in my life.
You're the inspiration.
I wanna know what love is.
I want you to show me.
Here I am.
Rock me like a hurricane.
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Laura
Happy Birthday to you

This is the whitehouse website were you can view George's handwriting adnaseum

One patriot says:
Holy shit!
It looks like most of this poem comes from 1980's easy listening music!!!
"Rock me Like a Hurricane" Scorpions
"I want to know what love is" Foreigner (odd!)
"Fly higher than an eagle/because you are the (wings) beneath my (wind)" - Bette Midler (transposed)
There's some Peter Cetera in there with "I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of"
And there is that night in shining armor holy toledo he is AN IDIOT!

And as bonus treat to my favorite poetry readers I include a republican website in which they focus on Bush and Laura' sex life and hair. This site is so funny I couldn't stop laughing for an hour. They are freaked out that Kucinich isn't married. They don't want a president that they can't imagine have sex with his wife. It includes pictures and them reminiscing about bush photo ops. Very good stuff. I'd say let these idiots alone, they provide enough satire naturally.
