Springtime for Obama

In Cairo and in Tripoli,
In Yemen and Amman,
Our Foreign Service diplomats
Are mobbed and set upon.

At embassies and consulates
In London and Kuwait,
The mobs that burn the Stars and Stripes
Spew venom, rage and hate.

From Europe to the Middle East
The street has gone berserk,
Infecting Asians, Africans,
The Arab and the Turk.

To which the Foggy Bottom crowd
Expresses its remorse;
They find the safest thing to blame:
America, of course.

And with the rising body count,
And chaos from the crowd,
The White House gives a firm response:
“We couldn’t be more proud.”
