Death Poems for the Bush Administration

With apologies to the samurai... ( From here and here.)

Like a rotten log
half buried in the ground -
Bush's administration, which
has not flowered, comes
to this sad end. ...

Bitter winds of winter --

but later, river willow,

open up your buds

Empty-handed Bush entered the White House

Barefoot he leaves it.

His coming, his going --

Two simple happenings

That got entangled.

Like dew drops

on a lotus leaf

Bush vanishes.

Less than 36 hours until freedom and democracy again return to the United States via regime change.
