Lost her luster
Now that Bernie Sanders is doing it.
Sustaining the Bush tax cuts
With no ifs, ands, or buts
Is how the negativity machine's construing it.
There is hardly enough heft
Among Senators from the left
In the next Congress to keep pursuing it.
And if they did
Would it end the Democrats' skid
Or for the economy further undoing it?
Of Filly Buster
Only in a Capra movie trust her
Proven by recent history reviewing it.
So put Filly Buster to bed.
Say what has to be said.
Then vote down legislation instead of skewing it.
