Twas the Night Before Inauguration

This from Lori Roman over at Regular Folks United, linked below. Really clever hit on St. Osama...T

Twas the night before inauguration
And all around the White House
The Republicans weren’t stirring;
They’d been told not to grouse.

The porta-potties were put on the parade route with care
In hopes that St. Obama soon would be there.

The cabinet picks were hustled up to Capitol Hill
Where Hillary practiced being polite and not shrill.

And Pelosi in her tiara and Reid in his crown
Did their best to hide scandals from sun up to sun down.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
They ran from the chambers to see what was the matter.

They rushed to their microphones just to assure us,
But we still saw the crowd around Roland Burris.

Americans were interested to see the new show
And all the new actors with scandals in tow.

When what to our wondering eyes should appear,
But an inexperienced leader and his comrades of fear.

With a little chief-of-staff so sneaky and quick
That he can disappear when caught in Chicago style tricks.

More rapid than rats, his comrades they came
And he joked and pandered and called them by name.

Now Geithner, now Holder
Richardson and Clinton
On Socialist Browner
Olberman and Wolf Blitzer

To the top of the Hill, to the top of the mall
Now stash away, stash away, stash away all

All of your secrets and all of mine too
And smile as we perpetrate the biggest coup.

So up to the House and the Senate they flew
With their sleigh full of hand outs and St. Obama too.

And then in a twinkling we heard him speak
“We can do what we want. Republicans are weak.”

All dressed in Burberry from his head to his foot
His clothes were all tailored like he had lots of loot.

A bundle of pork he had flung on his back
It’s the Chicago way he said as he opened his pack.

His eyes how they twinkled and his ears did protrude
But no one stared, so as not to be rude.

Giving a nod, up Pennsylvania Avenue he road
For the future of our country not well did it bode.

The Dems are plagued with dirt and scandal
With Blago and Holder and Richardson and Rangel.

With Republicans spineless and the media with him
The future looks bleak and daunting and grim.

Will everyone follow and act like sheeple?
Or are there liberty loving courageous people?

Where do we find those that are ready to fight?
They are to be found at RegularFolksUnited website.

We will stand up for liberty and for what is right
We will band together and raise voices with all of our might.

So fellow patriots we cannot worry or cry.
We have much to do—America is too young to die.
