Description: For my Spanish class we had to write a calavery (a fake obituary for a public figure) for Day of the Dead...this is mine...it needs a lot of work on the format, the rhyme scheme, and etc....but i just wanted to see what everyone thought of it so far
Obituary: George W. Bush -------------------------------------------
Today George W. Bush died
And not a single person cried
Tomorrow he goes in the ground
In his new big wooden box
To be president of the dead
He'll promise them peace, but instead
He'll declare war in justice's name
On some far off cemetary
After four years, between me and you
They'll be smart and elect someone new
Three letter...LOL...this was great, and I also find it funny on the amounts of posts any political poems or anything gets...I liked this one, I hate Bush...And I don't care what anyone says or thinks...Good Job
well, I feel the emotion. But I am sort of angry. See what someone's ignorance leads too. Well, he declared war, but in order for the war to have been declared i would have to be passed by over 77% of Congress. So, maybe we should blame the hundreds of people there who agreed with him. Maybe it was of ill-will, but our representatives are to be equally blames, as our government does strive for checks and balances, which trust me, seperates us frombeing a 3rd world country
LOL, I love it. I like how it dogs him because some people deserve it. We should fly him to the middle of the warzone in Iraq and see how long he lasts. I just can't see how he got reelected. Maybe people like war and economic decline. This is great. I think it's fine because I can't see this being any more ironic.
i do see who you voted for and it isnt the dead guy. I have to say i voted bush but in va i didnt matter but they both had there good parts and bad kerry flip floped lot where bush did promise peace but gave us body bags full of stiff that they put as nameless but were a soldier that died over purpose less cause good job i loved it sean
Ok to be honest I dont like kerry or bush. I dont like anyone in politics. I dont care about politics. I am gonna comment on the actual write instead of what other people are doing and bashing you for your beliefs which I strongly disagree with. It was very well written. And some good imagery I could see george bush as the president of the dead and the dead having a war. Which is kind of cool because people say when you die you are finally at peace and that is the total opposite people at peace having a war. Well I liked it. keep it up.
i majorly aggree with hybridsongwrite. this was really disrespectful! how dare you! you don't know anything about bush except what you hear from your parents. i doubt you did any research on his accomplishments. so you think bush is so bad then what do you think of kerry? the man who would have made abortions legal. the guy is a major hypocrite. overall this poem has no point and it is badly written. and i'm not saying that just becasue you wrote bad things about bush.
I thought this was the most disrespectful piece of work i have read in a long time. How dare you, from any culture or belief, write a poem about the subject of a false death of the president of the united states. You should be ashamed. Besides, it's not like kerry or clinton( or any other loud-mouthed democrat for that matter) are any better. But wether you like george bush, or you don't, it's still massively disrespectful. I don't go writing crap like this about kerry and his life, do i?
Its a really good idea, and i dont think you should just let it go to waste, even if its just a school assginment. Your words about bush are way exhausted, and way to common to be taken seiorusly. Somebody sees this title and wants to hear something new, and your deep thoughts and such, but you left it so topical. I think you should try to revise it... and elloborate too. never let your stuff be ordinary
there is one thing we Americans need to remember, that is we have the power over the president. most people are scared to stand up for what they belive if it involves the Government. I am not afraid, but I am just one person against a whole system. if I had to go it alone I would although I doubt it would not make much of an impact cuz of my minority status.
i quite enjoyed this obituary. for multiple reasons. the only thing that came up as odd in my head as i read this was that america HAS to pick a new president in four years because W. has already been president...that just sort of threw me off. my favorite part was the "on some far off cemetry"...it really sticks with the images of the poem. and i don't think the lack of rhyming in the third and fourth lines draws too much away from it-if you find something better, go for it, but it's fine the way it is.
I take it you're a Democrat. Don't get me wrong I agree with you completely. I think the message rings out loud and clear. I really liked this piece. There is no good reason that our troops should be out there getting killed. I was in Afghanistan, and I believe we needed to be there, but there is no reason to be in Iraq. He was my commander in chief and I still don't like him. I don't know, you just hit a nerve with this piece. That's a good thing. Good work, Keep them coming. etc. etc. -Light
