Poisoning the Well

Seems to me the well's been poisoned for a long time.(

Buckle up your seat-belts, folks...  We face a bumpy ride
('though it's not as if our recent trip has been a glide.)
Lame duck Congress members are preparing for a fight;
Want to make a point instead of doing what is right.

Do not poison future wells, Republicans have said;
While conceding that an Immigration bill is dead.
Even though the system's badly broken, I'm afraid,
They insist Obama break the promises he's made.

If the President does not give in to their demands
Mitch McConnell says the GOP will wash its hands
Of the next two years and let the country go to hell...
Wonder if they'll wash with water from the poisoned well?
