Republicans are mighty pissed
At Washington’s chief “socialist”
Who spoke to students nationwide.
“Subversive bilge!” these critics cried.
Barack displayed both guile and gall
By urging pupils, one and all,
To study hard, their teachers heed,
In order to in life succeed.
Shocked parents, charging that high marks
Were clear inventions of Karl Marx,
Discerned Obama’s sly intent,
And spotted what he “really” meant.
Accordingly it made good sense
To shield their children’s innocence
By keeping them at home that day,
So’s not to his smooth talk fall prey.
Demanding that his speech be quashed,
They didn’t want their kids brain-washed.
How dare he preach a concept vile
Deceptively, with guile and smile?
It seems that in advance they knew
The line to which the prez would hew.
Let’s not such silliness prolong!
Those on the right are often wrong!
