Sharpie, the Pen of the President

George W. Bush loves the indelible ink
as he signs death warrants for insurgents

There is something about the shape
reminds him of a cigar or zeppelin or bullet

it feels like victory

each pen carries the presidential seal
& he gives one away with every signature

Something to remember him by

He sends shiploads to Africa for AIDS
blessing each and every one
