Obamahama or Hail to the Thief

by Ima Trueblood American

(2008)

There once was a black named Obama
Who said he’d never celebrated Ramada-ma
he aspired to steal
the highest office with zeal
though related to the tyrant Sadam-a.

There once was a black named Obama
who rose as fast as a high-speed Yamaha-ma
He’ll be an illegal president
since he’s just a mere resident
and his election will be a crude sham-arama

There once was a black named Obama
who was backed by the Zionist cabal-ahama
and though born outside the U.S.
it caused him no distress
for friends in high places will spare him the drama.

There once was a black named Obama
who came selling a deceitful panorama
He’s an Obamination it’s clear
with an ivy-league sneer
God deliver us from this black "male" (?) Aholibamah.*

[* words ending in -ama are sparse, so I had to get creative; Aholibama was one of Esau’s Canaanite wives; Esau married outside of his racial family and brought disgrace upon his people.  When the “U.S.” “elects” a foreigner to the highest post of our land, it will be equally disgraceful.]

There once was a black named Obama
who will fleece us like so many llamas
though as commander-in-chief
he’ll bring comic relief
it will be a horrendous psycho-drama.

There once was a black named Obama
who probably wears funky pajamas
the high office will suffer
from this inexperienced duffer
and the first lady(?) will be called the “first Big ole mama.”
