Bush Poetry

I love this. It's a poem constructed entirely from the nonsense that frequently spouted from the mouth of ex-US President George W Bush. I first heard about the poem a few months agao but wasn't sure about the accuracy. But the ever-brilliant Barbara Mikkelson at has checked it out and, barring a couple of tiny misquotes, it's pretty good (you can read her analysis here)! The poem is generally credited to Richard Thompson, a writer/artist for The Washington Post.

So here we go. Unintentional poetry from the gibbering cakehole of George Dubya. Enjoy.

Make the Pie Higher!

By G W Bush

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!
