g. w. bush - poet laureate

We've all seen the Bushism calendars. We know about those moments when the president seems to find himself to be grammatically challenged. Some time ago writer Richard Thompson gathered some of the quotes and put them together in this poem, which is now making the e-mail circuit. So, on the this dreary winter's day, for those of you who didn't get the e-mail, we present this work of literature:


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!
