In Memoriam: Hugo Chavez
Share
clear

So farewell then Hugo
Chavez. Not to be confused
With Hugo Boss. Though
You were a Boss. Mourned by
George Galloway, Ken
Livingstone, The
Guardian, The
Arab World. Embraced by
Ahmadinajad.
They must be
Caracas
There’s no turning back -- that
Was one of your
Catchphrases.
Dead right. Off Hugo.

It should have been made clear that the tag line of "Asian hordes of 'Million Dollar Babies' " referenced birth tourism.

My thanks to the alter ego* of Mary's Throbb-ing manhood, but it should be acknowledged that Hugo gave voices and faces to the voiceless and faceless masses.

Less Victor Hugo than Victor Charley
An angel from Hell
Projects his sulfurous** smell
A horse's ass without a Harley

** From CNN:

Drawing on 2006 remarks in which he compared former U.S. President George Bush to the devil, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, speaking at the United Nations Thursday, said, "It doesn't smell like sulfur anymore."

In a rambling speech at the U.N. General Assembly, Chavez spoke highly of current President Obama, saying he is an "intelligent man" and comparing him to President John F. Kennedy.

"I hope God will protect Obama from the bullets that killed Kennedy," he said. "I hope Obama will be able to look and see, genuinely see, what has to be seen and bring about a change."
