Whimpers in the Whelpering

Whimpers in the Whelpering

Hope springs eternal or so the poets say

But nothing seems poetic in Washington today

Battle on the wind, stalemate all a’grind

The blame, The game as who can best opine

There’s whimpers in the whelpering

Oh, the little pups so fine

There is no hope, no helpering

For those who love to whine

A battle for security we asked for vows to win

Promises they make to keep until the tests begin

But one is standing firm it seems until the battle ends

They’re Trumped, They’re stumped, And soil their vast Depends

There’s whimpers in the whelpering

Oh, the little pups so fine

There is no hope, no helpering

For those who love to whine

Mitt came in a full on wail to prove he does not quail

We’ve never won, Its how its done, Republicans just bail

Not that they are weak, just only in the knees

They got a plan to make a stand if the press agrees

So now the people wait with dread anticipation

Ignored again, stuck again, a sad capitulation

The pattern can be broken if the truth be spoken

Find the spine, Hold the line, Courage can be woken

But, there’s whimpers in the whelpering

Oh, the little pups so fine

There is no hope, no helpering

For those who love to whine

The Republican Waffle

The Republican Waffle

Oh, it’s that ominous Dance
The people’s game of Chance
Now that a victory’s Won
Just how will it all be Undone?

The Republican Waffle

We knew it would Come
Like the beat of Drum
They passed Tax Reform
Then scurry back to the Norm

Surprised somehow they’ve Won
Where did that spine come from?
Our legislation broke Tradition
To ask the Democrats Permission

The Republican Waffle
It’s kinda like a Shuffle
When they run from a Scuffle
It’s the Republican Waffle

It’s not a dancing Craze
Just the usual Haze
Afraid to seize the Day
They cower at the donkey Bray

The Republican Waffle

We gave them what they asked
With a list of Tasks
But they found so many Ways
And means to avoid the Frays

Just a mere Rebuttal
Will cause Ole’ Mitch to Scuttle
The plans he’s Makin’
For Schumer’s Belly-achin’

The Republican Waffle
It’s kinda like a Shuffle
When they run from a Scuffle
It’s the Republican Waffle
