Brandenberg

Jack spoke there freely, like a saintly sinner --
(jelly donuts for breakfast, and brats for dinner?)
Pronouncing to all who would listen: "Ich bin ein Berliner."

Now Obama's running, and looking like a winner
Except that, if he wasn't such a heavy spinner
He'd be forced to admit it, "Ich bin ein beginner."
