As Obama and House leaders huddle,
For solutions to our fiscal muddle,
They must now redefine
All the terms they malign –
Like entitlements, taxes and trouble!
On Thanksgiving Day we should stop,
All working and pretense should drop,
And give praise with your host
To what matters the most –
At least until Walmart says “Shop!”
Getting the House in Order
Republican Boehner now tries,
With Obama to reach compromise;
But through taxes or debt
He’ll be hard-pressed to get
An agreement the Tea Party buys!
Obama must now lead the nation
In bipartisan accommodation;
The fear is what if,
We go off “fiscal cliff,”
This calls for some real mediation.
