Falls mainly on the brain.
Conservatives are prone to give very short shrift,
To the concept we know as the paradox of thrift.

A penny saved is a penny burned.
Down payment is dandy.
But leverage is quicker.

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse,
And of reading the Times Op-Ed, she's had a divorce.

Of bad news, and giving thanks.
Today is not the day for elaborate pranks.
I'd like to wish all my readers good cheer.
By offering up lame rhymes instead of spreading more fear.
