tip-toeing Obama

Written by: andrew delapruch

got up this morning &
put on the proper shoes
to tip tippity 
tap tap tappy
dance for
Netanyahu---
walking the hardline with one
foot, whilst he got the
softline under the other,
telling us all that though 
Israel has the right to “defend”
itself from 
the firecrackers,
“it would be preferable to
avoid a ground offensive
(aka INVASION)
of 
Gaza”---
counting down the hours
until the next maniacal move,
he speaks the routine rhetoric
of how Hamas started it,
of how Israel’s soldiers 
“will be more at risk of
being wounded,” if in fact
they invade Gaza &
of course,
that the people of Gaza 
will be better off if 
Israel’s military escalation
doesn’t come to 
fruition---
like a bad actor who can’t even
find his mark on the stage,
scampering through the ruffled
pages of his
script,
our pandering presidential puppet,
shows us all just what a good
figurehead can do,
when confronted with
chaos, destruction & the death of
innocent people,
caused by the funding of his own
administration,
rumbling
rumbling
rumbling,
in the belly of the
empire.
