‘Twas The Fight Before Christmas

 The New Civil Rights Movement presents our annual ‘Twas The Fight Before Christmas. 

 ‘Twas the week before Christmas,
And all through The House,
The Speaker went begging,
While the Tea Caucus groused.

They’d agreed to Defense cuts,
And to let taxes rise,
If by the end of the year,
There was no compromise.

Though they’d given their promise,
They would all bite the bullet,
Now that it was crunch time,
They refused to fulfill it.

It had been but a head fake,
A Tea Party scam,
To ease past the election,
Then they’d spring their real plan.

When the Teas were in charge,
Under President Mitt,
They’d restore those Defense cuts,
And feed the Dems shit.

But they’d lost the election!
They still were in mourning,
How could this have happen?
There had been no forewarning.

They had done gerrymandering,
They had purged voter rolls,
Made onerous ID laws,
Caused long lines at the polls.

But President Obama,
With his warm friendly grin,
Played by the rules,
And still managed to win!

He convinced single women,
Who don’t know their places,
And gays with his new,
Same-sex marriage embraces.

Though Obama won Asians,
Hispanics and Blacks,
Republicans thought,
He was not coming back.

They believed that sequester,
Had been sly like a fox,
But now they were caught,
Like a fox in a box.

They could vote for new taxes,
And break Grover’s pledge,
Or do nothing at all,
And go over the edge.

So Boehner beseeched them,
He was hoping this season
Of Christmas, would help them,
To listen to reason.

“I’ve made the best deal,
I could make for our country.
We must put aside dogma,
And Democrat effrontery.”

And though doing nothing,
Meant taxes would rise,
When they whipped the Tea Caucus,
The nays beat the ayes.

Our congress went home,
For their Christmas vacation,
Without stopping tax hikes,
Or forced sequestration.

So as they hang up their stockings,
I give congress this warning,
You’re sure to find coal there,
Come Christmas morning.

One piece of coal for each lie they have said
And one piece for each stall tactic they fed

One for each moral they so loudly preach
and one for each moral they so quietly breach

If you add up the pieces they'll fill more than a truck
For all the crap that they say, we answer WTF!

So sleep dear republicans in your warm little bed
While visions of take overs dance in your head

While the rest of us dream of equality tonight
and the things we have won because we can fight

We'll dream of fairness for all in our bed
With hope that your party soon will be dead

Happy Holidays to all, Season Greetings for some
Merry Christmas to those who feel there's a war to be won.

Blessed Be
