There Once Was A Politician

There Once Was A Politician


There once was a politician

Who'd known work as an electrician.

Whenever a spark

Left folks in the dark,

He'd taken his pole and gone fishin'.


When he came to The Hill,

And wrote his first bill,

It was all he could do,

to fleece me and you,

but just part of his former tradition.


There are bills, and then there are Bills....

Home owner or taxpayer, it all comes out of the same pocket.

      aviannovice - Yesterday's "State of Disunion" speeches made it sound as if the ongoing political war is ongoing. At least you could find a smile this AM.
