Oh dear President Obama, I cannot thank you for that speech.
I’m hungry as can be and a home is out of reach.
Oh dear President Obama, that speech is getting old.
While you lie and make shit up, I’m out here in the cold.
Oh dear President Obama, didn’t you say we’d get a break.
Benefits are cut and the poor got no fair shake.
Oh dear President Obama, you said I need to work real hard.
But those who have no job, you and congress disregard.
Oh dear President Obama, my school was closed last year.
So flipping endless burgers will be my new career.
Oh dear President Obama, have you closed Guantanamo?
And how many foreign leaders do you plan to overthrow?
Oh dear President Obama, the military’s budget wasn’t cut.
The powers of the NSA, you didn’t really gut.
Oh dear President Obama, why did Wall Street get a pass?
You looked the other way when they fucked the underclass.
Oh dear President Obama, about that war on drugs?
Turkeys all get pardons while inmates just get shrugs.
Oh dear President Obama, you should think before you speak.
We see right through your lies, so go practice your technique.

…and no, I did not look at the SOTU because I refuse to listen to more lies. I read the text of the speech and of course, business as usual. Blah, blah, blah, blah.
“Work hard Americans, get an education, congress cares about you TONIGHT since we’re all here. Let me be clear, I am here to help you through these good times that we are having. The jobless rate is the lowest it’s been in years, businesses are hiring, and I am foaming at the mouth from lying, so please excuse me a minute. Joe, get me a big handkerchief, a really, really BIG handkerchief. And let’s continue to fund our military might all around the world. We’re ‘peacekeepers’ ya know!”
Well, that’s MY take!
