Ode To A Meltdown (by Peter Buxton)

Our President Obama is birthless
and lots of his plans are just worthless.
He'll smash up some old cars
and promote lots of Czars,
But Nancy Pelosi is mirthless.

She's stuck running the House,
counting votes from the South.
And the poor little dear
has Murtha to fear
from constantly running his mouth.
