It's Not My Fault
Another Political Poem by Lana Black
President Obama is trying to gear up for a fifth Presidential year,
Yet still, "It's not my fault," is the message America is forced to hear.
So many Americans have little to no income left to budget or save,
However, "It's not my fault," the President continues to rave.
Too many in America are suffering, they have little left, groceries are scant.
But, we still hear Obama's Fairy Tale promises with his "It's not my fault" rant.
The economy remains impacted by a ridiculously high unemployment rate,
"It's not my fault" says Obama by appointing an impotent Jobs Council as diversionary bait.
The People struggle while Obama vacations, entertains and plays golf,
As for your economic downturn, "It's not my fault" the President does scoff.
The President has it hard, often basking in the glow of a flashy star,
"It's not my fault" he insists while flashing a big-screen smile from afar.
Obama loves to deliver speeches that focus on I, Me, and Mine,
As we listen, he reminds us, "It's not my fault," one more time.
Avoiding responsibility for Benghazi was an expected political goal,
"It's not my fault" is the claim as Obama goes on another tactical roll.
A full term without a budget and without more than an airy speech,
"It's not my fault" is driving some in America to want to impeach.
A President who despises one class over another is our unfortunate lot,
"It's not my fault" he spews to ALL the Americans who Obama forgot.
A Harvard graduate, slick lawyer, and community divider of both left and right,
"It's not my fault" Obama reminds half of America while ignoring the other's plight.
Tax-payers are too heavily burdened to carry Obama's bloated Socialist plan,
He insists "It's not my fault" but still sticks it to every decent woman and man.
Obama loves the power of wielding the Executive pen,
"It's not my fault" that ink is an option, he claims again, and again.
The deficit has ballooned far out of control while under Obama's power,
We can almost hear him sing "It's not my fault," as he takes a White House shower.
He walks around smug and delighted to grow the government's size,
"It's not my fault," he endorses while stacking bureaucracy and smothering us with lies.
Obama is conducting a great socialist experiment at our country's expense,
"It's not my fault" he'll keep saying in a few years as his hands he does rinse.
In a country where everyone has a chance to sprint or crawl their way to the top rung,
"It's not my fault" he excuses about his own success with an over-worked tongue.
A few still hold the illusion that this man cares more about them than his own skin,
Meanwhile, "It's not my fault," is a message that's fast wearing thin.
Sadly, our country is constantly assaulted by Obama's divisional voice,
And he selfishly concludes "It's not my fault," but it is his choice.
