Homage to Obama

Homage to Obama

You have to hand it to him: he succeeded.
He’s rich beyond your wildest dreams, if not
His own. Wails of the chorus all unheeded,
He forged ahead – and this is what he got.
He gets to flip the bird at you a lot
From palaces that socialism built.
Stop preaching in response, you Russian bot!
You aren’t inspiring any leftist guilt.
His lordly role he’s playing to the hilt.
Warriors dance before the Afro-King.
The flowers at his feet disdain to wilt,
And even country western crooners sing.
Barack Obama’s numbered finally
With today’s gods, Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
