Congress In The Heath


Cousin Lady Erica* cries across the ocean blues
to cousin Madison and his Specters†: you’ve

forsaken my spirit to lift an old tea ship,
adrift the socialist moor of yore,
a fog and marsh imported.

The U.S. congress of heath
is peaty, bogged down in
quasi-stimulus, look
you petty porkers afoul,
the sheep’s in the swamp,
the cow is in the heath

The liberty choir has lost its voice.
Hush petty Pelosi, let Eric Cantor sing.
The sheep are simply cowering,
the corn’s not in the cow

Hush little Pelosi and David Obey,
a thirteen dollar tax cut
won’t feed the middle class,
any more than pap will

Much ado about
the Shrub League players.
— Snerd Lee Limbaugh
*Erica: Genus for Shrubs, rigid and branched, the heaths. Or person’s name.
†A ghost or a last name: Senator Arlen Specter, one of three Republican senators voting with the Democrats.
Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the Republican whip.
(House minority leader, Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio).
Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California.
Representative David R. Obey of Wisconsin, chairman of the Appropriations Committee.
