Clean Messaging (Limerick)

In President Obama’s October 8 news conference about the current budget and debt ceiling stalemate with Republicans, Obama said: “We can’t make extortion routine as part of our democracy.”

Clean Messaging (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

We can’t make extortion routine,
Said Obama, and that’s why a clean
Bill for spending and debt
Is a requisite get,
Else democracy’s sure to careen.

    Mad, another well honed limmerick-I’m so ticked off about this–I thought we agreed not to negotiate with terrorists….Boehner is such a spineless creep, won’t even bring it up for vote–Argh!

    You’re off on a wide tangent tacking,
    Pile on with Republicans whacking,
    While the real cause you see,
    Right there in D.C.,
    Is because we’re leadership lacking.

    We have a good leader selected,
    By our citizens duly elected.
    But he can’t do a whit
    Because of those twits —
    With Republicans our nation’s infected!
