At every kerfuffle-
I shan't have the time           to peer at the sky
               Rubble around me                   and six inches deep
My only recourse    ahh!    triple mud pie!
Economy crumblin'      Wall Streets a mess
             No one will notice             I've pickled the cress!
Breads in the oven    yea!   spiked with hashish
         Just one bite congress  
                                       might pass some relief!
Tornadoes are twistin'     earth shakes below
If memory serves me  i'll conjure up snow
For more than five lifetimes, patience we've been
While line by line                      constitution has waned
Grab your water pistols- fill your balloons
Let's have a party
Make lawmakers swoon!
