the Obama precidency

The Obama presidency


He started out promising but fell at the first hurdle

When he tried to give America a health system

That covered the working classes, what’s left is

An insurance system they can ill afford.

He sent back thousands of illegals back, but since

he was the darling of the liberal press little was said.

Once when he had the chance to become great

By declaring Palestine, a free state, he didn’t quite

Make it, and his speech ended in platitude.

He will be remembered as a suave but weak man

Who baulked at the pressure from Israel?

He was not a great statesman but buckled under

The burden and there are little to remember him

By other than what he could have been.
