FOR OUR NEW PREZ
another Inauguration poem
Got up this morning, doffed my pyjamas
And penned this poem for Barack Obama's
Oodles and oodles of happy fans
Leaping and shouting their "Yes, we can!"s....
"Und so weiters" (Berlin), "et ceterae" (old Rome),
"Et plus encore"s! (Paris)---until I got home
& found that our porridge had been quite et up
By Bushes and Madoffs in Goldilocks get up!
The Bull Market now has turned to a Bear
& the Bankers are saying there's nothing there
For the homeless, the sick and the heart-broken poor
Who patiently stand by the Great Golden Door
That sweet Emma said would be opened to all.
Remember them, Barack, at your Inaugural
& save ‘em a dance at the President’s Ball.
Henry Braun & Jim Watt
