A New Obama Poem: Look At Me

Unable to turn on a TV without seeing President Obama on it this poem poured out of me as I sat down to eat lunch today.

Look At Me
As the cameras are rolling
With our undivided attention
You take out a mirror
And tell the world
To look at you
Standing behind you
While you gaze at yourself
In amazement
I look at you not in wonder
Nor to rob you of your thunder
That left the bottle long ago
When I look at you
I see neither black nor white
But rather a bitter green
Comprised of envy and vanity
Covering a skin too thin
And not wise enough
To know that we can see
The bottle is empty
Of the spark that ignited
The world in your image
