The Deal

 

 

Obama tells us everything is well.
Obama says the world’s a safer place
now that he has his deal. The nagging smell
of danger? Guys, we have to have the grace
to trust Obama’s clean and honest face
when he assures us that the future’s bright.
He is a credit to the human race.
He is our nation’s one unfailing light.
Oh, put your faith in him! And keep in sight
that he resides above absurd complaint.
When others say he’s wrong, he knows he’s right.
When others say he’s nuts, he knows he ain’t.
He’s as secure as euros are in Greece.
You like your peace? Then you can keep your peace!
