Clement Moore Revisited: Twas The Night Before Fiscliff

                           

Twas the night before Fiscliff, when all through the House

Not a statesman was stirring, not even to grouse.

Neither bills nor amendments have much of a prayer

Since hope and change fever brought gridlock to bear.

.

The citizens pondered in fear and in dread,

What will happen if off the cliff we go instead?

Obama was sure he set Boehner a trap

To force taxes higher, give rich folks a slap.

.

When on CNN there arose such a clatter,

I sprang to the set to see what was the matter.

Wolf Blitzer was shouting, he had a news flash,

Was a formula found that would scare up fresh cash?

.

The gloom had sent stock markets gyrating so,

While the luster of gold lured all those in the know.

When, what on the six o’clock news should appear,

But a fat helicoptering cash bombardier.
