PRESIDENT George W Bush is not renowned for his wise words. He is often ridiculed for dropping clangers during interviews and speeches. Now some of his silliest quotes have been turned into verse by Washington Post writer Richard Thompson for National Poetry Month.I think that we all agree, the past is over.

This is still a dangerous world.

It's a world of madmen and uncertainty

and potential mental losses.

Rarely is the question asked

Is our children learning?

Will the highways of the internet become more few?

How many hands have I shaked?

They misunderestimate me.

I am a pitbull on the pantleg of opportunity.

I know the human being and the fish can coexist.

Families is where our nation finds hope, where

our wings take dream.

Put food on your family!

Knock down the tollbooth!

Vulcanize society!

make the pie higher! make the pie higher!
