…And throughout the kingdom,
People questioned if Congress is really this dumb,
As to go home for Christmas, while the fiscal cliff looms,
Caring less that America and the world could face doom.
Grover Norquist was screaming at his minions with no brain,
To stand stubbornly against any revenue gain,
That’s required to pay for the bills coming due.
“So what if we default? Our credit can just go screw!”
He knew that we’ve been there just one year ago,
When he scared the republicans into just saying no,
To the grand bargain agreement from Obama and Boehner.
So the USA’s credit rating lost its bright shiny retainer:
No longer to be listed as the best “Triple A”.
And Grover can return to fight many more days.
“Make the government so small that you can push it in
To your bathtub and drown it,” Grover says with a grin.
In the meantime, the people who live in this land,
Will see taxes go up, 401K’s turn to sand;
Unemployment will rise, while Wall Street has a fit,
The economy will shrink, and your stocks will be shit,
All because Grover’s pledge, the GOP dare not break,
will drive the USA in a car of unknown make,
Over the fiscal cliff, so when Christmas bills come due
You may not have a job, so might not pay bills, too.
Grover still makes his money, from donations and fees,
All the while forcing congress to do as he sees,
Is real great just for him and his wealthy good friends,
While the rest of us suffer trying to make ends meet ends.
But the taxes will rise on wealthy as well,
And when they see the impact, they will be mad as hell,
That the congress did nothing to avoid this event.
Then slowly they’ll start to ask where Grover went:
The Bahamas? The Caymans? Just where could Grover be?
Perhaps on a yacht sailing over the sea…
After all it is Christmas, and Grover’s big gift,
is to screw all the people which gives him a lift,
For it’s Christmas, and Grover likes presents and such,
So he’s enjoying the Season, oh, so very much.
So when January comes, and your taxes just rise,
Remember the guy that promoted his lies.
And the gutless republicans that could have been part,
of the solution, which would have been real smart,
But instead chose to cower before Grover’s big threat.
To mount primary challenges seeking election upsets.
The guy is a Hitler, spreading hatred and fear,
And in true Christmas spirit should never be here.
So the message we send to the this anti-tax guy,
Is the he should just drop it, and live like the small-fry
That he is ’cause he never was gonna go far,
Just ask one who knows him so well: Bill Maher!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all (one) of us at We, the PEOPLE!!
