    The Noble Nobel

    As a time of change, & hope in the air,
    We expose ourselves as the gullible race.
    We believe in what we are told will happen,
    As the leaders of the world go platinum.
    A war monger has left, we then had a chance, 
    But instead we offer ourselves to a liar of peace.
    He broke all of his promises, is it really a surprise?
    Yet, here's the Nobel Peace Committee giving him a prize.
    What about Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the shoe thrower of Iraq?
    Where is his nobel peace prize, where was his chance?
    How about the Israeli high schoolers who chose jail over war?
    They'd rather live behind bars to make sure no one was killed.
    Pakistan remains bombed by the U.S. military drones,
    As the Iraq/Afghan wars remain waged by the hour. 
    For a man who says justice will be done in Guantanamo Bay, 
    Yet then refuses to even release the pictures. 
    Even our climate was put into promise by our now leader, 
    Saying he'll do all that he can to help reduce Co2.
    Yet, now all I'm seeing is the same I saw from Bush, 
    He rather deserves an Oscar for being such a convincing actor.
    So this is a message to the oh so noble nobel, 
    Take back the award & give it to the one that deserves it.
    Obama, I'm sorry, but you truly do not deserve such a prize, 
    Rather a mandate for the charge of war-crimes 
    As you continue Bush's policies.

    I really like this phrase... "What about Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the shoe thrower of Iraq? Where is his nobel peace prize, where was his chance?". Very Good point. I agree with the message this is sending. Obama must go. I just hope another snake doesn't take up his agenda. Excellent piece.

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
