Limerick - Congress

Updated on May 4, 2015

Congress of the USA

Try as they might, and we sure hope they will,

the 114th Congress is "Do Nothing" still.

With compromise lacking, and passages few,

we're still waiting to see how much they can do.

Are they climbing or just falling up there on the Hill?

Is this the new ballot box we need?

      b. Malin - I know whereof you speak! I have just finished (is it ever really finished, just wait until readers start writing in with the typos and perceived misstatements!) the editing of my second of 12 books ready for final editing. One sentence, one page, one chapter, one book at a time.

      The writing was easier.

      Thanks for taking a break and commenting. That's about all I have been doing for several months now, with an occasional short Hub thrown in.

      I am glad you like this one. I sent it to my Representative Jason Chaffetz for whom I have a good deal of respect. He's a deserving troublemaker up there on the Hill, as of right now at least.

      Besarien - And they would be concerned too, if they watch our Congress' inaction.

      This made me smile. I love your ballot box too. I often wonder what our founders would think if they could watch our Congress "in action."

      MsDora - I will try sending it to my three and see what happens. A form letter reply is the most likely response, and I will have paid for those pieces of mail, too.

      Practical and beautiful! How do we make them read it and answer?

      phdast7 - Our family believes in praying for our leaders and the leaders around the world. Part of our regular prayers is a part praying that they may be inspired and inspired to act righteously in a timely manner. Still hoping....and praying.

      Good afternoon, Demas. I have never written Limericks, but I certainly appreciate a good one when I see one. Let us hope and pray that reason and common sense will prevail. Blessings! Theresa
