Overheard

 

As soon as I started
covering Barack Obama,
I knew he was
going to be trouble.

 

Not Global Trouble,
like W. and Dick Cheney.
Or Hanky-Panky Trouble,
like Bill Clinton and John Edwards.
Or Tedious Trouble,
like John Kerry and Michael Dukakis.

 

He was going to be
the kind of guy
who whipped you up and then,
when you were all excited,
left you flat,
and then,
when you were deflated
and exasperated
and time was running out,
ensorcelled you again
with some sparkly fairy dust.

 

Less Spocky, More Rocky
