Brutus is an honourable man.

How odd that Senator Obama’s friends,
His patrons, his promoters, his allies,
His mentor and spiritual guide, his wife
All damn America, or call her names,
Or want her punished for her wicked ways;
Some even tried to blow her up themselves.
He surely, surely does not share such views,
He is himself an honorable man,
A friend of knaves but not himself a knave.
He swam in muck, but he remains quite clean -
To even doubt this would be downright mean.
