Bush Haiku

Here’s one that landed in my inbox this week. It was prefaced with “Bush may be Commander-in-Chief but he does not have command of the English language, case in point:”

Bush Haiku
This is a short poem made up entirely of actual quotations from George W. Bush. These have been arranged, only for aesthetic purposes, by Washington Post writer, Richard Thompson. A wonderful Haiku poem like this is too good not to share.


I think we all agree, the past is over.
This is still a dangerous world.
It’s a world of madmen and uncertainty
And potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked,
Is our children learning?
Will the highways of the Internet
Become more few?

How many hands have I shaked?
They misunderestimate me.
I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.

I know that the human being
and the fish can coexist.
Families is where our nation finds hope,
Where our wings take dream.

Put food on your family!
Knock down the tollbooth!
Vulcanize society!
Make the pie higher!
Make the pie higher!


  1. It’s not really Haiku is it? I mean, it’s not 17 syllables in a 5-7-5, three line format. Heh… I guess that’s the point. 😉
