Oh, if only they had listened! But, no. There was a poem read at Obama’s Inauguration today. In case you didn’t notice, it was totally diverse and stuff, too.
Some liked the poem.
Fancy! Alas, many others were just not feeling it.
Um, this poem is shit.—

what does this poem have to do with OBAMA and black ppl—

Rep. Cantor does not appear to be a fan, either.
Heh. The Twitter panning continues.
Is this poem going to take longer than Obama's speech?—

Malia Obama has grown another four inches since this poem began.—

This poem seems as long as Obama's inaugural address. And ticks off just as many liberal talking points.—

President Obama also didn’t seem to appear enraptured, to many viewers.
Obama's face during this poem is correct.—

President Obama's looking like he really hopes no one asks him a question about the poem.—

An explanation perhaps?
Zing! That is a safe bet.
Honestly, wouldn't we have all liked it more if Richard Blanco wrote this poem about Michelle Obama's bangs?—

Journalists would have loved that one. Squee!
The poem got its own hashtag.
But, can it be improved upon?
And, so do other Twitter users.
Way better conservative poem: "Bacon Bacon…Bacon…Bacon Bacon bacon…Bacon…Bacon Bacon. Thank you."—

Keep the haikus coming, Twitter!
