Debate Poem

Ibrahim and Ishmael side by side,
tired eyes and
winning smiles,
100-watt bright.
Each takes his turn, polite as you like.

Balance the budget
restore jobs, borrow from China
or adieu to big bird,
tighten your belts,
recession is here,
we gotta dive in.

I did it for you…
Think of the children!

The best you can hope for,
all we have to offer you.

What of Gitmo?
Let's not talk about that.

Abracadabra, magic wand.
Subjects sleep, mesmerized.
Tweedle dee, tweedle dum,
old brothers at last.
