House, Go Home

By Jane Calderwood

Its days before Christmas
The Senate is gone
But the House continues
To keep hanging on

They’ve funded the government
Extended the extensions
And passed the majority of bills
Under suspension

They’ve named post offices
And talked and talked about jobs
And we long ago lost count
Of all the bombs they have lobbed

They shut down the FAA and
Failed to cut spending
And their complaints about each other
Seem never ending

So please dash away, dash away, dash away all
Go home and be quiet, we all need a rest
We’ll see you in January
When you return to fix this mess
