What Do Ya Say!

Editors note: Use of the above photo with this poem by the
author is not intended to demean any of our primate friends.

        You fix it, no, you fix it, no, you fix it.
        You try and figure it out Ďcause I quit.
        You hurt my precious feelings, so no.
        Iím not taking this anymore, Iím gonna go.

        Does this sound slightly familiar to you?
        Does it sound like our Congress, that whole crew?
        How in the world did all these people get there?
        They have us losing our minds and pulling our hair.

        They seemed so normal when they first went in.
        They changed so much since, where have we been?
        Why didnít we see how corrupt they were getting?
        With all of their shenanigans and all their jet setting.

        I for one think somethingís got to be done.
        Or we wonít have a country, absolutely none!
        I know, letís switch places with them just for a day.
        They will be us, we will be them, what do ya say?
