Bushku

Haiku inspired by the simple-yet-profound utterances of President George W. Bush.



December 29, 2005

He's a straight shooter.
When he's speaking you know just
Where Karl Rove stands.


December 14, 2005

He now blames the war
On faulty intelligence.
You got that right, George.
He thinks Iraq lost
Thirty thousand, more or less,
Since liberation
He says you must try
To keep history in mind
When your kid gets killed.
Removing Saddam
Was still the right decision,
Whoever made it.


October 7, 2005

I'm impressed the word
"Islamofacism" made
It out of his mouth


August 5, 2004
(addressing Pentagon officials: "Our enemies... never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.")

He will never stop
Thinking like our enemies
Perhaps he should try


April 13, 2004
(inspired by prime time press conference)

It's been a tough time
But he's still standing now he's
Got his war-footing
If he sees a threat
He looks forward to the chance
Of dealing with it
He knows in his soul
Brown-skinned people can manage
A democracy
He read the memo
And would move heaven and earth
Had he an inkling
Peace is elusive
But you can find mustard gas
In a turkey farm
- submitted by M. Fellin
Saddam in Iraq
Had plans to go 'nuculer'
Whatever that means

Got a Bushku? Send 'em in!

NOTE:     Everypoet.com has an automated "Bushku generator." It produces shortened haiku (lines of 3-5-3 syllables, rather than the traditional 5-7-5) that are pretty random in content. The site also offers Human Bushku which are more insightful. In any case, the "Bushku" on this site are not related to Everypoet.com ones and any similarities are coincidental.
