Fear And Loathing In The Age Of Obama

It doesn’t take a genius
to understand why
they hate him so
this destiny child president
who floats like a butterfly
yet who can sting like a bee
when the situation requires such

Like Ali before him
Obama is the master of the
political version of
The Rope A Dope
technique of tying up
his opponents
until they’ve spent
all of their reserves
of political strength
and then with
quick hands and
even quicker feet
he can dance all
around them
like a mythological jinn
throwing perfectly timed
punches and counterpunches
until he finishes them off
with a quick upper cut to the jaw

Make no mistake about it
In America circa 2012
Politics is a blood sport

Philadelphia, Pa. 2012
