Shut Down

My friend, they say They shut us down They closed up the Entire town Now we will not Get our mail Or it will come Slow as a snail

And services

Are cut and slashed

Uncle Sam’s checks

Cannot be cashed

We hope your money’s

Somewhere Stashed

 

Museums of

Air, Space and War

Yosemite

And Mount Rushmore

 

I’m sure you heard

The saddest news

They soon will close

National zoos

 

But do not fear

Apes will be fed

That is what

The Congress said

 

For Congress made

A great tirade

Monkeys get fed

AND WE GET PAID

 

Hold the checks

Of simple clerks

And those who

Help in public works!

 

To Congress staff

Who work right there

I guess they’ll

Have to volunteer!

 

Will those who’ve reached

Maturity

Get paid

Social security?

 

Of course, old man

You will get paid

It just may be

A bit delayed

That’s the hock

(Washington reid)

 

And travel

It will not be fine

You’ll have to wait

And stand in line

 

For five more weeks

You may just wait

Just to get

A passport date

 

And visas to

The USA

They may not come

The very day

 

The greatest thing about

This DC mess

Perhaps they’ll shut

The IRS

 

That you had asked

And you arranged

But now I ask

What really changed?

 

Our services

So often lacks

Despite each day

A higher tax

 

We wait in line

We wait for mail

And US programs

Often fail

 

Who knows

What’s worse

Obamacare?

Or this new mess

That happened here?

All I know

It’s all the same

And we all know

Who gets the blame!
