The Presidential Seal: Found Poetry Series

Nicholas Powers Oct 11, 2010

The presidential seal fell off the rostrum as Obama

apologized to Wall Street bankers for the “enthusiasm gap”

of younger voters crossing into tribal zones to file for bankruptcy.

Using false names, thousands of them visited apocalyptic Detroit

to make sand-sculptures of the 14.9 million people looking for work.

Angered liberals waved placards reading, “We’re going to get heart attacks.”

President Obama said the threat emanating from his poll numbers

could be forgiven but then the sky began to fall. He quickly

lobbed 25 drone attacks on activists made out of nothing more

than sand and water.

“I went out and saw fire,” said a hedge-fund manager, “It’s great

to see the president showing a fighting spirit before an election.”
