WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ninety-two year old former Judge, World War II veteran, and world record masters runner Ralph Maxwell has written and recited a poem on YouTube on Mitt Romney's myriad position changes.  The poem is substantive and hilarious with its truths by this nonagenarian.

After outlining Romney's "You flip flop almost ev'rywhere" including heath care, gun control, women's choice, immigration, global warming, minimum pay, stimulus, education, and taxes, he cites stanzas about "plundering" at Bain but "walked away a zillionaire," hiding tax returns, shipping jobs overseas, now he'd "feed the greed of the richest few" and "take an axe to millionaire's tax," among other issues.  The poem is 3 ½ minutes by this brilliant and insightful ex-judge.  He ends with a rising repeating crescendo calling for "Four More Years!"  The title of the poem is "Wherefore Art Thou, Mitt Romney?"

Here are links to Maxwell's video recitation of the poem with Maxwell in his World War II uniform that the 92-year-old still fits into (poem 2:26 into the video, preceded by biographical info including his statement he has "six children so far"), the masterful text of the poem, a recent photo of Maxwell leading a pack running, a picture with President Obama and Ralph's wife of sixty-five years, Liz, a head shot, and a biography.  Maxwell asked Robert Weiner, a fellow runner and public affairs consultant who spoke with Maxwell at this month's USA National Masters Track and Field Championships in Lisle, Illinois where Maxwell won several events, to release the video and information.

The Text Follows:

By Ralph Maxwell

O, Romney-O, Romney-O,
Wherefore art thou, Mitt Romney?
You flip-flop here, you flip-flop there,
You flip-flop almost ev'rywhere.

You ballyhoo what you're gonna do
And then you pull a switcheroo;
You now malign what you found fine;
Seems like you've got a jellyfish spine.

Obamacare, by you begun,
Now you'd trash it on day one.
Gun control you did extol,
But now you're preaching decontrol.

O, Romney-O, Romney-O,
Wherefore art thou, Mitt Romney?
We've got no clue what you will do
Or what new view you'll pander to.

Time was you championed women's choice,
But you no longer heed their voice;
On gay rights, too, guess you withdrew
Support they once enjoyed from you.

Global warming, EPA,
Immigration, minimum pay,
Roe V. Wade, also fair trade,
All joined your flip-flop cavalcade.

O, Romney-O, Romney-O
Wherefore art thou, Mitt Romney?
So many things that you were for
You've turned against and slammed the door.

Stimulus and cap and trade,
Education, foreign aid,
Campaign reform, tarp rescues, too,
All victims of your switcheroo.

You take your stand on shifting sand,
We never know where you will land;
You vacillate, you fabricate,
A wishy-washy candidate.

O, Romney-O, Romney-O,
Wherefore art thou Mitt Romney?
As gov'nor you let taxes rise,
Now ev'ry tax you demonize.

You say regardless of the facts
You'd take an axe to millionaire's tax;
You'd feed the greed of the richest few
The poor and middle class you'd screw.

Your tax returns you hide from view
What evil lurks there we've no clue;
If they're not bad why hesitate?
Or is it they incriminate?

O, Romney-O, Romney-O,
Wherefore art thou Mitt Romney?
At Bain you plundered with a flair
And walked away a zillionaire.

You shipped off-shore, good jobs galore
To China, India, Singapore;
A job creator you are not.
To boast you are is tommyrot.

Romney's a fraud, he's got no peer;
What we must do is crystal clear:
Let's give Obama four more years!
Yes, it's Obama – four more years!
