Make the Pie Higher

More email fun. This was sent to me by Jen Strong. It is a poem that comprises real quotes from President Bush assembled by Richard Thompson of the Washington Post. I think this is a message of hope for the twenty-first century. Enjoy.

MAKE THE PIE HIGHER
by George W. Bush


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!

Update: I found this poem so amusing, I set it to music.
