Casting Obama

They contrive an upheaval

Of a non-existing character

For character assassination,

They create a bobble-head that

Looks like him

On an empty chair,

They publish his alien

Birthplace that

Never was,

They call him a crooked socialist who

Saves banks and Wall Street,

A job killer who rescues GM,

A terrorist sympathizer who kills Osama,

They knot him, stitch him,

Loop him, bounce him

On a trampoline

They shape him as

An actor in their private movie,

Authenticating their own aspersions.
