According to Joe
Biden has a downside
Biden's faults are widely known
Like choosing words that aren't his own.
Obama might feel ill at ease
With Biden's foot-in mouth disease.
Will Obama's pleasing golden throat
Be sullied by his sour note?
Can anyone stifle Biden's trend
To talk and talk without an end?
