Poetry by the Education President

This is a poem made up entirely of actual quotations from George W.Bush, arranged for "aesthetic" purposes, by The Washington Post writerRichard Thompson. A wonderful poem like this is too good not to share. Ah, yes! A testament to literacy in the age of Every Child LeftBehind!


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!
