Rubbing shoulders at the G-8 summit

Bush declared, “Oh, what the heck!
I could not hold myself in check.
Her muscles were taut -
Needs a man’s touch, I thought,
So I rubbed her back, shoulders and neck!"

Forbes 20/7/06 : An impromptu back rub that President Bush gave German Chancellor Angela Merkel is now massaging millions of funnybones. A 5-second video and series of photographs recently posted on YouTube.com and various blogs show Bush surprising Merkel at the G-8 Summit by quickly rubbing the back of her neck and shoulders. The chancellor immediately hunches her shoulders, throws her arms up and grimaces, though she appears to smile as Bush walks away. Read the story here

    Was it a massage for a (possible) lumbago?
    Or was it a massage for the lady's
    (also possible) ego?
    What was in Bush's mind
    When he crossed the lady's behind?
    But the act surely seemed that of a weirdo.

    (Diplomacy has its own work ethics
    and Presidents are no exception to it)
