President Barack Obama used the funeral for Hawaii senator Daniel Inouye to talk about himself. In the short 1,600 word speech, Obama used the word “my” 21 times, “me” 12 times, and “I” 30 times.
Eulogize Inouye, one can ask: Why?
The praiseworthy words are but I, me and my.
There is none like Barack
On himself he looks back.
Narcissimus Maximus, he is not shy.
