The Blame Game

“One of the most destructive human pastimes is playing the blame game. It has been responsible for mass casualties of war, regrettable acts of road rage, and on a broad interpersonal level (social, familial and work-related), a considerable amount of human frustration and unhappiness. The blame game consists of blaming another person for an event or state of affairs thought to be undesirable, and persisting in it instead of proactively making changes that ameliorate the situation.”

He’s up again, in his pajamas,
Tweeting about all his traumas,
And no matter what’s wrong,
You can bet, before long,
He’ll be claiming the fault is Obama’s.
