The Night Before Christmas 2020

Yuval Rosenberg
·1 min read

'Twas the night before Christmas, and up on the Hill

Congress keeps fighting over its stimulus bill.

Pelosi pressed Republicans to see if they dare

­Block the bigger checks Trump said are fair.

Sure enough, Republicans denied their consent.

Then off to their homes our lawmakers went.

Bye, Mitch! Bye, Kevin! Bye, Nancy! Bye, Chuck!

And Trump showed no signs of giving a f—-.

He left for Florida early last night

To pardon more pals while he still has that right.

So it’s no Merry Christmas for all, not tonight.

Because the president and Congress won’t end this fight.

They all say they want the economy to grow faster

But right now it feels like we’re headed for disaster.
