Lame ducks are quacking
After Obama's recent shellacking.
Senators we've learned to abhor
All of a sudden came to the fore.
Now it's time to ring the bell
For it's goodbye to Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
Surely we have the Tea Party to thank.
They're why the lame ducks turned up the crank.
Knowing in the next Congress nothing will be done
We see politicians working well under the gun.
An observation that gets one to think
What can be done to put Congress on the brink?
For in the twisted logic that now seems our curse
Congress can function only when the next will be worse.
Perhaps we need to shorten their term
To uncloak their ideology which keeps their views firm.
Whatever it takes let's toast the lame ducks.
They've done something worthwhile, so let them cluck.*
*A friend reminds that it's chickens which cluck. My reply is we've got two fowls in one, lame ducks that are chicken.
