What is truth's pure golden nugget?
A debt-free real balanced budget!
The concept is known
But history has shown
Great figures know how to fudge it

Author's note:  The right wing wants to pilfer nature's bounty and destroy the natural balance to make us rich because god says it's OK.  The left wing wants to do the same--only more slowly and without god.  In the end, capitalistic greed is the real evil because it is taking us to a critical point of no return.  We really need to stop using smoke and mirrors and do an honest accounting.

    I agree Duke! When Clinton was asked how he balanced the The budget He answered with a smile and one word ; "Math" Congress has gone mad.

    A no-win situation for the man in the street. Clever use of "figures" in the last line. Nice limerick, Duke :)
