The speaker’s primed to say once more
It’s rising debt that he must halt
He’ll hold us hostages encore
Perhaps he’ll lead us to default
This doesn’t seem to bother Boehner
He’s glad to take us to the brink.
There is no posture that’s insaner
You’ve got to wonder what they think.
The sticking point in these debates
Is that no taxes can be raised
That’s what the GOP relates
Is sacrosanct, the Lord be praised.
No tax increases for the rich
They’re “job creators”, don’t you see
They’ll drive us all into the ditch -
Default would be catastrophe.
But Boehner and his right-wing friends
Are full of fight and we surmise
That, judging by the latest trends,
They’ll not consider compromise.
Why do things have to be this way?
Nothing ever seems to work.
And the reason it’s so bad today?
Republicans have gone berserk.
