Make the Pie Higher!


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!

Make the pie higher!

This is a poem made up entirely of actual quotations from George W. Bush, arranged for “aesthetic” purposes, by Washington Post writer Richard Thompson. A wonderful poem like this is too good not to share. … Ah, yes! A testament to literacy in the age of Every Child Left Behind!

In case you were wondering what my sources of inspiration are at present.

This is my cure for writer’s block or low self esteem or any kind of self doubt. Try it. Read this, slowly, savor it. Relish the fact that this is the prez of the USA. Mind you, we PuertoRicans don’t vote on the island(really this isn’t a colony) so we can really watch from a distance and wonder. Wonder at a dumbass like that for a prez and wonder at the dumbasses who voted for this man. They sure did make that pie higher!

Anyway, back to the motivational aspects of this poem, it helps to see that even when you are tired, burnt out, brain dead, you simply can’t be this stupid.

See, don’t you feel better about yourself now? Now go coexist with some fish why don’t you?!
