Not everyone will like this poem but I felt a desire to write this, so I'm going to go with my heart and do it anyway. I like to try new things and take some risks, and I hope this risk is worth it. I try to be fair here and hope I am.
As a young man you dreamed of greatness
Of power to do great things and hopefully help many people
You succeeded in your goals and won the contest
To people's applause, and their hopes of a better future
But it didn't last long when soon huge disasters struck
Horrible ills and evils that led to panic, pain, and death
Action was required, tough decisions and unpopular choices
The choices made were controversial and still are to this day
Opposition quickly blasted out and criticized what was done
Blame was squarely placed on you, likely more than was due
Lies, half-truths, and quarter-truths were mixed in with facts
Few seemed to know what think but many joined in the growing anger
In spite of this you somehow succeeded to remain in your place
But more disasters soon followed and more tough choices needed
The good things done were mostly ignored, the bad overblown
Strong agendas smeared your reputation and mixed the facts
Though I am not attempting to defend all of your actions
And I do not agree with every decision, strategy, and viewpoint
I can't help but feel somewhat sorry for the way you were treated
From the ignorance and anger fuled by biased minds
I take the risk to write this poem to give some missing respect
And mourn the deaths of common sense, whole truth, and open-mindedness
A victim, I feel you are, of misinformation and some of your own doing
But no matter how many out there will call you "the worst," I will not
And that is why I choose to remember you differently than most and say...
Thank you for whatever good things you did, George W. Bush
