Anthem of Liberty… A Tribute to Orly Taitz

Anthem of Liberty . . . A Tribute to  Orly Taitz

Inspired by the Statue of Liberty

I am proud to be a Birther!
Obama is a big Usurper.
Our Lawyer is Orly Taitz,
We’ll take back the United States!

We fight for the Constitution.
So there won’t be a Revolution.
We fight for Mom and Apple Pie.
Even if the price of gas gets  high.

And we don’t think Obama will
Ever let us offshore drill.
Or up on the Alaskan slope.
Because he is a Marxist Dope!

We are your “poor and huddled masses”
Spread across all social classes.
Some drive trucks and some wait tables
And some of us are poets if we are able.

We can’t wait to salute the Flag!
Being Liberals is not our bag!
We can’t wait our Allegiance to Pledge
And we aren’t fools like they allege.

We are just “yearning to breathe free”
With air for you and air for me.
We are the “refuse on your teeming shore”
But you can’t refuse us anymore.

The Traitors say that we can’t win.
But we’ll come at them again and again.
For FREEDOM there are no substitutes.
If we have to file a million suits.

And in our hearts we know we’re right,
So we will never give up the fight.
Although we will never breach the peace,
Our Vigilance will never cease.

And like the Statue of Liberty
Orly Taitz stands there for you and me.
With Torch held high, you see the Flame!
That puts the other ones to shame.

So come you now, from across the Land.
Join up and lend a hand!
Butchers, and bakers, and candlestick makers
Catholics, Protestants, Mormons, and Quakers.

Farmers and doctors and office clerks, too.
There’s an awful lot that you can do.
Maybe with money, and maybe with time.
You shouldn’t be afraid to spend a dime.

For poets like me are working for free,
To secure the blessings of Liberty
For all the “hopeless and tempest tossed’
So that their Freedoms will not be lost!

This is one of the longest poems I have ever written. One of my customers at the convenience store suggested I turn my talents to Orly Taitz. I had never heard of her but I researched her on the internet.  She has had an uphill battle trying to get President Obama un-elected. There is much disagreement as to whether she is right or wrong.  But as a professional poet, it is my job to praise her,  not to bury her or to dig her back up. Whether you like her or not, you have to admit she is one hell of a fighter.

And when you keep losing, that is when the real spirit of a champion shines through.  I can relate to that. I have gotten enough rejection slips to bury me, but I just keep writing. So, in my role of poet, I have to put myself into her place and try to express the ideas of her Philosophy. Just as we honor men like Robert E. Lee,  because he was true to himself and fought hard, even if being a rebel was not looked kindly on by the “other side.”

    hilarious!
    get a life and stop defending this Chicago crook in the White House.
    Go to the Selective service page, enter in the registration verification “Barack Obama 042-68-4425”
    that’s the social he is using, issued in CT in 1976-1977 to an individual born in 1890. We have a thug sitting in the White House with the social security number of a deceased.
    Guess, who will be the biggest casualties of this fraud? Democrat politicians

      ? I left another comment about the typo. It should have read “We can’t wait to salute the flag” not “We can wait, etc.” I am sorry. It was late and I had just gotten off work.

      Oh, Orly doesn’t like this.

      Obama was born in 1890? And he’s deceased? Then who is that in the White House?

      I’m so confused.

    Orly will like this.

    Me? I need a drink.

    I was paid to write a poem and this is the best poem I could do. It is a very long poem for me. I looked up Mrs. Taitz on the internet and she is a fighter. I saw her on youtube. So I wrote the poem. She didn’t like it because I made a typo about the flag on it.

    The Statute of Liberty has a poem on it, so I used the poem to make the poem. It took a whole day to write this. It is not what you say it is.

      Charles, you are pure, and true.

      Your sister?

      • March 13, 2010 at 9:11 pm

        What is so bad about the poem? I think this is the best one I have ever done. Do you know how hard this was to do?

        I had to look up Mrs. Taitz and learn all about her. Then I had to figure out how to make it worth the $20.00. Then I had to read the Statute of Liberty poem. Then I had to make it all rhyme. Do you know how many words rhyme with USURPER? Burper and slurper was all I could find.

        I am proud of it.

        Charles, please don’t be upset. Mother Gaia knows how hard you worked on this.

        You paid $20.00?

    I forgot to add: that rhymes.

    Yes, a customer paid me $20.00 to write the Tribute poem. It is the only money I ever made writing poetry. I would have kept the two Ten Dollar bills and framed them but I needed the money. So I just framed a One Dollar bill I got as change.

    I have a Kenyan social security card with my baby footprint on it.

    Actually I have several which can be customized. I was planning to auction them on ebay, but I heard that ebay sales will soon be taxed, so I’ll just sell them on the street corner, as usual.

    How about renaming this blog New American Poetry Without the Poetry?

    Dr Taitz does benefit from a SOCIALIST provision providing dentistry to the huddled masses. I’m not sure her credentials in campaigning against health care reform are quite in order in that respect.

    Anyhoo, I like your poems. Are you working on anything at the moment?

    • March 24, 2010 at 11:11 am

      Thank you. It is good to know there are some nice people in the world. I do have a new poem about how my computer internet got turned off. Plus, I am working on Geronimo the Indian. It may take a while because I have to look up everything on him.

    You just don’t see a lot of actual Vogon Poetry on the net.
    Well done sir for finding some.

      Thank you. I did not know I was writing this.

    I found your website because of someone in California had a link. I am a real Poetry Critic and after reading this so-called poem, I can truly say that it really sucks. This is one of the worst poems I have ever read in my whole life. QUIT YOUR DAY JOB and CHECK INTO A MENTAL HOSPITAL! You are a complete DORK!

    I am a real Poetry Critic who lives in California. I have re-read this shitty poem because I thought maybe I WAS HAVING A FUCKING NIGHTMARE. OH NO, it was real, and it really does suck so much that I want to move to a foreign country.

    “We are the refuse on your teeming shore” is the same thing as saying YOU ARE GARBAGE! You sure got that right!
