Ghazal #3 Unromantic version

They say he is a usurper, the commentator said.

Did she think the noble opposition had run or fled?


The US Commander-In-Chief did stand his sworn ground

and worked and worked, thinking and thinking before bed.


staying up late as often he is want to do,

he sought for liberty and stood in another’s stead


and thoughtfully considered what all had been through

and had decided regarding war the US was over fed


and had had enough of what they all wanted to eschew,

the people of the country and Obama headed for bed.
