The Debt Brigade

I remember in high school doing a very difficult poem in english class from Lord Alfred Tennyson called The Charge of the Light Brigade     Now I saw this on another website.

   For the 300 or so Democrat members of the House and Senate (with apologies to Al Tennyson):

The Charge of the Debt Brigade
Half a tril, half a tril,
Half a tril downward,
Into the valley of Debt
Sank the three hundred.

“Forward, Obama Plan!
Tax more the rich! We can!
If they’ll pay their fair share
For illegals on Welfare.”
“Forward the debt down the path!”
Was there a Dem afraid?
Not so; the debt must have growth
If the seniors are paid.
Theirs not to debt decry,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to tax us high:
Into the Valley of Debt
Slid the three hundred.

Waste to the right of them,
Fraud to the left of them,
Default in front of them
Snickered and chuckled;
Yelled at with Tea and threats,
Gladly they raised the debt,
Cutbacks not outlined yet,
Paychecks they still will get . . .
Damn the three hundred!
