Barack Obama, Do Cyborgs Dream Of Robotic Sheep? An American Poem

by Mark David King

Barack Obama, Do Cyborgs Dream Of Robotic Sheep? An American Poem Synopsis

After a hearty, poetic rap in the sublime direction of President Obama, this modern piece of extended poetry spins the yarn about an adolescent boy and a truly traumatic accident that leaves him terribly deformed. Subsequently, the boy's existing form of health care denies payment, them viewing the needed surgey as something purely cosmetic; hence, the boy's disenchanted, conservative father finds favor in Mr. Obama's majestic concept for new health care. Too, this epic ode touches upon the theological spine of the United States, giving the Bible Belt two legends locked in a religious debate about the combative differences of the Catholic and Protestant Churches; also, the Drug War is sung about, especially how it is nothing more than a declaration of unjust war by the government upon its own people, violating our American standard of True Liberty. May God bless Obama, granting him life and health! And of course, Sarah Palin's spirit does haunt this story, reminding us to: DRILL BABY,DRILL!
