Yes, *coughs* hello, I’d like to express my frustration with the Government Shutdown in the form of a poem.
Following Sen. Ted Cruz’s lead, I’ve set my poem to the tune of another Dr. Seuss classic, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.
One park, Two parks, Yellow Park, Blue Park
Some have many tourists, others have few, some tourists are old and some tourists are new
Some are sad and some are bad. But most are very, very mad
Why are they sad, bad and mad? I don’t know. Go ask your DAD
Some throw cones and some jump fences. If they get caught they incur expenses
They stop those who like to run. They stop those who once fought The Imperial Sun.
Oh me. How silly!
Oh my. How silly!
What a lot of things to close so willy nilly

Some blame one party but some think it’s more
Who do we tar? None can say
But I bet many would like to send them away
We see politicians come
We see politicians go
Some are mean
And some are low
Some are odd
But some of them “grow”
They don’t seem to like each other
You wish to know why?
Go ask this mother
Thank you. Coffee brewed til 10pm. Please tip your waitresses. Their hours have been cut. Happy Barrycade jumping, all!
