|"Gentlemen, we must hang together or surely we shall hang separately." Benjamin Franklin|
Wall St. isn't thrilled the Ship of State's not changing crew.
All the folks who couldn't work together will return...
Industries are worried, so they're crowding at the stern.
Maybe I'm an optimist, but I think this can work
(Even though McConnell's still behaving like a jerk.)
With the many storms we face there has to be a deal,
Just as soon as everyone stops fighting for the wheel.
Yes, we're in for painful cuts and turmoil overseas
But, in times of crisis - times an awful lot like these -
As we face a fiscal cliff, with no room left to stall,
I believe true patriots will heed their nation's call.
