Little Eddie – The President of the  ‘United Confederacy of Stupid and Incompetent’

Little Eddie
Little Eddie

There once was a man from Cuba –

Who ended up in Alberta by traveling over Florida and Manitoba;

He met a girl from Delaware –

Soon they were a couple,  as everyone in the oil business was made aware.

Little Eddie Rafael was born in Calagary –

Tantrum was the kid’s middle name, as he was always angry.

The man, his wife and Little Eddie –

They all moved to Texas sometime after Nineteen Seventy.

Houston may have taught Eddie some bucolics –

But it was Princeton and Harvard that got him into politics.

Eddie the boy, now was a man –

So grown up, he took up jobs to be a law man.

Bush, Cheney and Boehner took him under their wings,

Feeding him all the tricks of their conservative stings.

Fictitious lure of the free market and the baptist church –

Pushed Eddie to build an imaginary world, with hatred for the poor and love for the rich.

A few years later, Ted, the imbalanced Texan, caught a Tea Party Express train –

Little did anyone know that this journey could later cause the country so much pain.

Ted ran for the ‘Office’ in the year Twenty Twelve –

DeMint, Palin, Ron, Rand Paul and many more just let him delve.

Paranoia, Hatred, Narrowness, Imagination or something in his hair  –

May have contributed to Ted’s ‘this’ obsessed nightmare.

Perhaps Ted didn’t want everyone around him to have good Healthcare –

Or he was just worried about people falling in love with the ‘Act of Affordable Healthcare’.

So, he took it upon himself to read ‘The Green Eggs and Ham’ on the senate floor –

‘Cos he wanted to shut the government door.

His colleagues squirmed, twitched, yelled and screamed –

Yet the unrepentant Ted was bent on having the government employees creamed.

Days went by, and the little Eddie started to show up –

Tantrums were thrown, angry voices were raised and he just wouldn’t shut up.

Seeing his plan become a train wreck, He had no choice but to give up –

His colleagues spat on him and asked him to grow up!

Till date, no one really knows much about Little Eddie’s aspirations –

Except may be, he wants to secede from the federal government and all its possessions.

So do you think he may be better off being the President –

Of his own Republic of the ‘United Confederacy of Stupid and Incompetent‘?


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
