TAKING the HIGH ROAD when SPEAKING of the DEPARTURE of the BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA and HIS FAMILY from 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.


__ We All Should Wish Them Well __

For all the quips and jibes and taunts
And brutal castigation
This First Family's image haunts,
And begs new valuation.

Both elegant and wholesome 
This group radiates great charm
We should feel proud 
They reached a goal some 
Tell us did no harm.

Their image, lean and lissome, 
Does great credit to their race.
To know them might be bliss. Some
Feel an urge to kiss each face.

The father’s been a failure
Many say with unchecked bile.
Rated as the Holy Grail your 
Welfare class adored his style.

Conservatives despised him
And insisted he must fail,
While the the Left who idolized him,
Thinks the Right belongs in jail. 

And so we’re now divided
Many saying we’re at war
With those we have derided
Thus forgetting what Life’s for.

Although his leftist stance
Has been essentially perverse
We should not want to dance
Upon his grave. That make things worse 

By deepening the chasm 
That now between us yawns
We kill enthusiasm
Thus darkening all our dawns.

So please try to remember
Barack with charity;
His legacy’s an ember
Now. Let’s pray Trump sets us free.

Our Beloved Friend and Favorite Antagonist
is Gravely Ill and Fighting for His Life
in a Battle with Metastatic Cancer.

We ask those of you who pray
please to pray for his recovery,
and the well-being of his wife
and family.

We ask those who do not believe
in the power of prayer please to take
a few moments each day to send
your kindest thoughts and fondest
hopes his way.

Right Now the Guy Needs All the Help He can Get.
The Least We Could Do Would Be to Consider Him
and Hope for His Return to Good Health
in Our Thoughts and Prayers.

THANK YOU
