The President Wakes Up Laughing

The President Wakes Up Laughing By Elton Camp The president has been sleeping sound of late Because of results that he had to view as great Last night he suddenly awoke with delight From a dream that was funny, not of fright The GOP had decided its image to remake And so a more fitting symbol it would take The elephant had served them many a year But another would make their position clear He dreamed they considered a hawk & snake But one different they finally decided to take They said, “This will show our principles well As all who see it will instantly be able to tell” The president’s face into a grin did expand He beheld the visage of a Neanderthal man
