The 113th Congress - The Party's Over

I guess it's too much to ask that Congress do its job.
They're too busy moaning that the President's a snob;
Doesn't hang around with them or have them in for drinks,
Doesn't seem to care what Mitch McConnell really  thinks.

Hey! I love a party just as much as anyone;
And I know that, sometimes, they're a way to get things done.
Sometimes, though, a Party only wastes the People's time.
Right now, the Republicans - the subject of this rhyme -

In a fit of pique have said, if they don't get their way,
They won't foot the bill for debts that we're obliged to pay.
Neither side is speaking now; they won't negotiate.
Party's almost over folks.  It's getting pretty late.

Speaking as a hostess who's had more than just a few
Parties, let me tell you what the Congress needs to do;
Put a pot of coffee on.  Sit down and share a cup.
Those folks are our drivers and it's time they sobered up.
