The Cancer That Ails The Nation

Doctors have removed a cancerous tumor
from Laura Bush’s shin,
why can’t they remove that huge

cancerous growth which shadows her,
that huge malformation which shadows us,
that huge cancerous lab rat

which gnaws at the country?
Why can’t these doctors remove it,
with a knife, a mousetrap, with chemo,

even with a goddamn Texas chainsaw?
Why can’t they remove that cancerous tumor
that Republicans call President?
