Poetry: “Government Shutdown” (Originally from 2013, but still very relevent)

Our Government has just shut down

And Congress, it seems, is out of town

Our National Parks have gone dark

Due to this Republican lark

Of “my way or the highway”

They (Congress) still get their pay

While our economy is waylaid.

Compromise is a dirty word

When your demands are not heard

Or heeded by the other Party

The poor they will suffer

Some will starve without supper

While politicians and their lobbyists eat hearty

The GOP and Tea Party are throwbacks

Who all ought to be thrown back

Obamacare is now the law of the land

Though when the GOP lied

They are mostly opposed to the new Health Care system

Out of greed and pride

Though before many have gone untreated or died… (tbc?)
