National Poetry Month

This poem is composed entirely of actual quotes from our president, George W. Bush. The quotes have been arranged for aesthetic purposes by Washington Post writer Richard Thompson. Too good not to share, especially during National Poetry Month…

Make the Pie Higher

I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It’s a world of madmen and uncertainty and potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked
“Is our children learning?”
Will the highways of the internet become more few?

How many hands have I shaked?
They misunderestimate me.
I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.

I know that the human being and the fish can coexist.
Families is where our nation finds hope, where our wings take dream.

Put food on your family!
Knock down the tollbooth!
Vulcanize Society!
Make the pie higher!  Make the pie higher!
