Ten Lies...and One Truth

If you've followed my wife's blog for any length of time, you know that she writes poetry on a near daily basis and that she participates in many different challenges given throughout the blogosphere.

Well, she asked me to add a couple of buttons to her blog template tonight, buttons that point to a couple of different sites offering such challenges. While doing so, I noticed that Poetry Thursday was running a challenge to write a poem about ten lies.

I'm feeling very snarky this evening and looking for someone to take it out on. Since I can't release my frustration on the person who truly deserves my ire, I'll take it out on someone who also deserves to be held accountable for their actions.

I am not a poet by nature. Nevertheless, I believe everyone has a touch of imagery in their souls.

That said, here's my contribution to this week's Poetry Thursday challenge.

Compassionate Conservatism.
Uniter and Not a Divider.
Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Warrentless Wiretaps.
I aim to be a competitive nation.
Axis of Evil.
War Against Terror.
Let's don't fear the future, let's shape it.
Are you going to ask that question with shades on?
You never know what your history is going to be like until long after you're gone.

Ask not what your country can do for you, George. Ask what you can do for your country!

"You never know what your history is going to be like until long after you're gone."

That's my favorite line, because it is the bumper sticker-ism for Dub's intelligence.

Nice!
