IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE - Part VI

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : Part VI

If you pull a long face
On great Government Shut-Down Day
Just think who'll replace
The Walls of Jéricho on Shout-Down Day

Yet if you pull a long face
While Dow Jones on downward swing stay
Just you wait to see how whose face
Wails to pull Wall down Méjico Way

If you then keep pulling a long face
Captain pulls selfie-face in Mid-East mélée
Never you mind the hotting-up furnace
Ice-cubes in high-balls melt during any fray

Yet if you pulled a long face
All year long to New Year's Day
You'd have pulled your pretty Rahab face
Only from deaf ear to another Joshua'd say

So if you must pull a long face
While all around you the damned World boils away
Just you keep on pulling that long face
Never you mind what lies in store past Doomsday
