Knotty Negotiations

Wonder Wednesday, over at Poets United, prompts us to write a poem about bridges or bridging gaps. I decided to cross that bridge with a limerick:

Knotty Negotiations
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It’s a challenge to bridge the large gap
Between parties who’d rather just flap
And complain that they’re right,
While their rivals just fight
Cuz they’re mean. So I’d rather just nap.

    U.S. House Speaker, John Boehner’s
    Idea for tax code designers:
    Just make the rates low
    For those with the dough.
    The rich, you see, are such whiners.

    Hopefully both sides CAN talk and reach a compromise.

    Truer words have never been spoken —about our Congress! “parties who’d rather just flap’ (their tongues !)

  4. Me, too! Witty one, Madeleine!

    sadly true…its no wonder we never really get anywhere…

  6. But what if you wake from your nap and find yourself in a nightmare?

  7. Yes, if naught can be resolved…nap, perfect solution…I’ve used this tactic before myself!! :)
