Poetic license revoked


In Pakistan, poetry came
Done up in the guise of a game.
Initials combine,
One each to a line,
To reveal our real leader by name.

Veiled ode to George Bush deleted from Pakistani textbooks

And THAT is because, tragically, it's a perfect description of his legacy so far. :( I would've expected better out of a Bush, but I guess we'll never see it. :(
