Here is the way

The  Republicans play

They piss in the stream without care

Then they go to the well

And scream bloody hell

When they cannot find clean water there


Finally, we have the adoption

Of the GOP feared “nuclear option”

They are no longer able

To take names off the table

By filibuster, jetsam and flotsam

These old white grey gits

Have been putting our tits

In the wringer for far far too long

By the idiot rule

That made these jerks drool

That passage took 60 votes strong

Now a margin of one

Gets needed things done

And the President’s judges will pass

And Mitch McConnell whines

‘Cause his partners-in-crimes

Have lost one big way to harass

Their penchant to jam

To put up a dam

To blocked anything from Obama

No matter what

It was dead on the spot

In their hatefully grim melodrama

And they didn’t even need

To stand there and read

For our business to be “filibustered”

No, it just took

The “F” word of a crook

To crap in America’s custard

Here’s what each sad l’il Republican boy

Has done to us all in their lust to destroy:

Below is the list

Of their filibust’ring grist

(And I really don’t mean to annoy)

[1]H.R. 12 – Paycheck Fairness Act
H.R. 448 — Elder Abuse Victims Act
H.R. 466 – Wounded Veteran Job Security Act
H.R. 515 – Radioactive Import Deterrence Act
H.R. 549 — National Bombing Prevention Act
H.R. 577 – Vision Care for Kids Act
H.R. 626 – Federal Employees Paid Parental Leave Act
H.R. 1029 – Alien Smuggling and Terrorism Prevention Act
H.R. 1168 — Veterans Retraining Act
H.R. 1171 – Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program Reauthorization
H.R. 1293 — Disabled Veterans Home Improvement and Structural Alteration Grant Increase Act
H.R. 1429 — Stop AIDS in Prison Act
H.R.5281 — DREAM Act
S.3985 — Emergency Senior Citizens Relief Act
S.3816 — Creating American Jobs and Ending Offshoring Act
S.3369 — A bill to provide for additional disclosure requirements for corporations, labor organizations, Super PACs and other entities
S.2237 — Small Business Jobs and Tax Relief Act
S.2343 — Stop the Student Loan Interest Rate Hike Act
S.1660 — American Jobs Act of 2011
S.3457 — Veterans Jobs Corps Act

What else?

Here’s an astonishing one. The Republicans filibustered the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act — basically, healthcare for 9/11 heroes. Every Republican senator voted to filibuster this bill.

So who are they who will cast votes

For such who will slash all our throats

Who’ve no other plan

Than destroying a man

Whose skin is a tad darker coat

  5. In a year the Republicans are likely to take the senate and keep it. What’s the reaction? It will be your poem in reverse.
