Limerick Ode To A Government Shutdown

Limerick Ode to A Government Shutdown
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The thought of a government shutdown
Should be quickly, decisively cut down.
But I fear that we’re screwed
Cuz of Washington’s mood:
Boehner’s party has turned into Nut Town.

    The thought of a government shutdown
    in the face of some spending spree Lib clown;
    Is it better to to park,
    Or to glow in the dark
    From a financial overspend meltdown?

    Washington, Westminster – same applies…
    Off the cuff:
    The thought of a government shutdown
    Brings to mind an expletive and rude noun
    If X marks the spot
    I’m a terrible shot
    I’m having a nervous breakdown…

    Oh dear, I hope it wasn’t anything I said. :)

  4. I like the idea of agovernment shutdown:
    there’s too much of it about.
    A holiday from interference would be a boon.

    It’s like an episode of The West Wing :)

    I’m just thankful that people are paying attention to whats going on, are waking up, and will hopefully put and end to what’s be foisted upon this country by the extreme right. Thank you Wisconsin for leading the way.

    Please excuse my first attempt.

    Shut’er Down

    With spending amuck
    the taxpayer’s luck
    quickly circles the drain.
    With sense, not a grain, in a politico’s brain
    Let’s send them all home in a truck

    I don’t typically get into political discussions, but this is well done! That said, if they don’t find a way to keep paying our troops, I will be jumping on my soapbox!

  9. The thought of a government shutdown
    Is not too far-fetched for this nut/clown
    My senator claims
    That he has higher aims
    Bu he’s in it to sit his fat butt down

    and for my NaPoWriMo:
    You Said It

    Loved this today! I was in the mood! Amy

  10. I’m in Madison three months now. We landed here just in time to pick up signs and yell. Now the governor has rigged the Supreme Court election, and all holy hell is going to break out.

    Bring it on, Scott Walker. We will never run out of energy, or WORDS. We don’t bully – we fight for the cause.
