Bush praise poem sneaked into textbooks
The Guardian reports today that someone managed to sneak a praise-poem for George W Bush into an English textbook which was being used on 16-year-olds in Pakistani schools:
Patient and steady with all he must bear,
Ready to accept every challenge with care,
Easy in manner, yet solid as steel,
Strong in his faith, refreshingly real,
Isn’t afraid to propose what is bold,
Doesn’t conform to the usual mold,
Eyes that have foresight, for hindsight wont do
Never back down when he sees what is true
Tells it all straight, and means it all too
Bracing for war, but praying for peace
Using his power so evil will cease:
So much a leader and worthy of trust,
Here stands a man who will do what he must
So, let’s see who can come up with some poems celebrating, or otherwise, some of our age’s other “great leaders”. Who better to start with than the Insensitive Jerk himself?
