I’m the decider

I’m the Decider”

I’m the decider.
I pick and I choose.
I pick among whats.
And choose among whos.

And as I decide
Each particular day
The things I decide on
All turn out that way.

I decided on Freedom
For all of Iraq.
And now that we have it,
I’m not looking back.

I decided on tax cuts
That just help the wealthy.
And Medicare changes
That aren’t really healthy.

And parklands and wetlands
Who needs all that stuff?
I decided that none
Would be more than enough!

I decided that schools
All in all are the best
The less that they teach
And the more that they test.

I decided those wages
You need to get by
Are much better spent
On some CEO guy.

I decided your Wade
Which was versing your Roe
Is terribly awful
And just has to go.

I decided that levees
Are not really needed.
Now when hurricanes come
They can come unimpeded.

That old Constitution?
Well, I have decided
As”just goddam paper”
It should be derided.

I’ve decided gay marriage
Is icky and weird.
Above all other things,
It’s the one to be feared.

And Cheney and Rummy
And Condi all know
That I’m the Decider –
They tell me it’s so.

I’m the Decider
So watch what you say
Or I may just decide
To whisk you away.

Or I’ll tap your phones.
Your e-mail I’ll read.
`cause I’m the Decider –
Like Jesus decreed.

Yes, I’m the Decider
The finest alive
And I’m nuking Iran.
Now watch this drive!


Hopefuller country

“I want it to be said that the Bush administration was a results-oriented administration, because I believe the results of focusing our attention and energy on teaching children to read and having an education system that’s responsive to the child and to the parents, as opposed to mired in a system that refuses to change, will make America what we want it to be–a literate country and a hopefuller country.”

Wrap your brain around that!

I don’t know if I’m feeling hopefuller or not but I sure am feeling busy. This month is absolutely insane for me. Too many deadlines, too little time!

I can hardly wait for Spring Break. I have SOOOOOOOO much work to do during Spring Break BUT it’s mainly my fun work (for conferences and such and stuff I’m INTERESTED in) and furthermore I hereby declare that I will do a great deal of it while ensconced in a comfy beach chair with a tropical drink in one hand. If I could line up some beautiful people to stand around in loincloths and fan me with freshly cut palm fronds that would be good too.

In the meanwhile, I will take my hopefuller self back to work!

Wow. I can’t even add any commentary. Just wow.
