Bushie pens a poem for Pickles
http://www.cnn.com/2003/ALLPOLITICS/10/03/bush.poem.ap/...

Laura Bush says her husband is a poet even if, uh, Americans don't know it.

<snip>

As her husband watched quietly, she recited it.

"Roses are red/Violets are blue/Oh my, lump in the bed/How I've missed you."

Bush sometimes refers to his wife as a lump in the bed.

Mrs. Bush went on:

"Roses are redder/Bluer am I/Seeing you kissed by that charming French guy."

And then the finale:

"The dogs and the cat, they missed you too/Barney's still mad you dropped him, he ate your shoe/The distance, my dear, has been such a barrier/Next time you want an adventure, just land on a carrier."

6. Apparently, it's just a pet name Georgie gave his wife
My mother had the same pet name as Princess Di--Cabbage!

13. I thought it was a Dick Van Dyke show reference
Sorrell, whose real first name is Maurice, shares his life with his wife Fiona. He calls her Pickles; this the custom with all girls from her hometown named Fiona. Buddy and Pickles have a German Shepherd named Larry.

10. Lordy help us now...
I read this thing, quite scarey. What's up with the ending, landing on a carrier as an adventure. Sad piece of crap, hit's about right on his intelligence level. I remember having to write a poem like this back in third grade. I think I did about as well as Bush.

11. She's Lump
Lump by The Presidents of the United States

Lump sat alone in a boggy marsh ,
totally emotionless except for her heart
Mud flowed up into lump's pajamas
she totally confused all the passing pihranas
She's lump , she's lump
She's in my head
She's lump , she's lump , she's lump
She might be dead
Lump lingered last in line for brains
and the one she got was sorta rotten and insane
Small things so sad that birds could land
Is lump fast asleep or rockin' out with the band ?
She's lump , she's lump
She's in my head
She's lump , she's lump , she's lump
She might be dead
Lump was limp and lonely and needed a shove
Lump slipped on a kiss and tumbled into love
She spent her twenties between the sheets
Life limped along at sub-sonic speeds
She's lump , she's lump
She's in my head
She's lump , she's lump , she's lump
She might be dead
Is this lump outta my head ?
I think so
Is this lump outta my head ?
I think so
Is this lump outta my head ?
I think so
Is this lump outta my head ?

12. gad
It's almost bad enough to really be written by him. It's almost one of those no-joke joke things.

15. This is a poem that I got from my husband-
Roses are red/ sugar is sweet/ And as I write this/ I have socks on my feet. He's not very romantic. But he always makes me laugh. Back to the original subject-Bush and Pickles make me sick. Why were we subjected to this little "gee, we're jes' folks" stuff?
