Twas the Night before the Fiscal Cliff


Twas the night before the big Fiscal Cliff
the one we’ve been waiting for since November the 6th.
The country is now shackled by one who does not care
and wondering how in the world he was voted in there.

The lawmakers and staff  were all snuggled in bed
while visions of numbers danced in their heads.
And me, I was awake for the dreaded next day
In the hopes they would listen to what we have to say.

When out on the White House Lawn there arose such a clatter,
The staff and lawmakers arose to see what was the matter.
Away to their windows they flew with a flash
When all of a sudden they heard a big “smash!”

The lights from the street shined bright on a new fallen snow
giving the lawmakers and staff a shocking good show.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
Union bosses riding motorcycles in expensive Leather gear.

With a few in the front who were lively and quick
I knew in a moment it was not good ole’ St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles, with noisy bikes they came
And the one in charge began calling their names.

Now Sullivan! Now Scardelletti! Now McEntee and Jones!
On Nicolai! On Simpson! On Prentis and Crow!
Line your big bikes along the White House wall
And wait, yes wait while I make this phone call.

The staff and lawmakers could not believe their eyes
They just couldn’t stand to hear any more lies.
Waiting and watching to see what the “boss” would do
Who was he calling? But I think they all knew.

Tough, mean and strong from head to foot,
these union bikers looked a lot like “big foot.”
Black boots and leather jackets covered their backs
They looked like they enjoyed late midnight snacks.

The “boss” finished his call; but all was not merry.
The frown on his face was really scary.
His eyes were glaring; and his long nose showed
he was an unhappy camper about to explode.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth
mumbling and grumbling he began walking the streets.
The call he had made did not end as he pleased
then all of a sudden he knelt down on his knees.

Looking up towards Heaven he began to pray
thanking God for his blessings of another great day.
The bikers all followed him one by one
falling on their knees in praise of God’s “Son.”

Vibrations of shock ran through the White House
not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
“When did this happen?” the lawmakers all said,
how did they change? Were they hit in the head?

About that time the union boss declared
“God gave me his heart and told me he cared.”
“So I changed my evil ways, and have now become
one of God’s children, his chosen ones.

“We came here to pray for the leaders of this great land
with hope that our God will lend us a hand.
“If God changed our hearts, he can change this country’s too,
so keep praying and praying and see what he will do!

    • Hey Larry..I met your match..his name is John Doe…he’s always on Joe Quatrone’s page..you and him could be the same person! I think you’d really like him. I’m being serious, too. He has that sarcastic ‘zing’ just lik you. God bless you..hope you’re having a great day and, hope you and your family are blessed over this holiday season as we celebrate Jesus! A little Homer Simpson for ya (_8^(|)

  1. Oh, Naphtali..I found the most hilarious video…can I post it here for you to see? It is absolutely hilarious! You will crack up!

  2. Very creative. Good thing our hope is not in this world. That’s not to say we don’t won’t to live in a good country with liberty and justice for all.

  3. Hi Cathy, yes it is very good to pray for those who are in Authority over us, it is what God asks us to do ( see below ) and we are to expose all evil with God’s Truth but we are not to condemn anyone, who are we to do so when we also did evil, it was only by God’s grace in Jesus that we were saved, but it was our choice to be saved, God did not force us to obey Him, He does not go against our free will , or does He force anyone to repent by changing their heart so they will submit to His guidlinesl but we can pray that the wrong they do will lead them to come to their senses as they reap what they sow, like the Prodical Son did.

    1 Timothy 2:2-3 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For Kings, and for all that are in Authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

    Titus3: 1-3 Put them in mind to be subject to Principalities and Powers, to obey Magistrates, to be ready to every good work. To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

    Christmas Love and blessings from us both – Anne.
