‘Twas the Night Before the Fiscal Cliff

By Jeremy Lyman

‘Twas the night before the Fiscal Cliff, and all throughout the House,
Few stood on principle, most cowered like a mouse;
The reality seems obvious; we’re free-falling off the cliff,
Why this is so hard for them to see has really got me miffed;

Our children are nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of the American dream dance in their heads;
Lower taxes, prosperity, and less government intrusion,
I’m starting to wonder if it’s all an illusion.

The answer is there for all who take heed,
Just follow our founders and they’ll take the lead;
The federal government has outgrown itself,
We should either trim it down or put it on the shelf.
