The earnest first days of the new Governor

Andrew Cuomo
The new majordomo
Of the once great state of New York,

Must with the dysfunctional legislature work
To reduce their own sizable perqs
And a cessation of doling out the pork.

Yet wasteful spending to unearth
Is far from enough to give birth
To a balanced budget brought by the stork.

The states belt tighten while the Feds tax cuts do extend
Creating an imbalance that looks like it might never end
Surely no cause for celebration with Champagne to uncork.
