Babs-I-Am

With apologies to Dr. Seuss, author of Green Eggs and Ham

*

*
What a sham! What a scam!
The bill is like green eggs and ham!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!
*
Will you use the spending axe?
Will you vote to raise our tax?
*
I will not use the spending axe!
I will vote yes to raise your tax!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!
*
Would you want a budget freeze?
Would you eat Obama’s peas?
*
I will not let the budget freeze!
I will consume Obama’s peas!
I will not use the spending axe!
I will vote yes to raise your tax!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!
*
Would you want us to default?
Will you make the spending halt?
 *
No default!
No to halt!
No to freeze!
Yes to peas!
No to axe!
Yes to tax!
The bill is like green eggs and ham!
It is a sham! It is a scam!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!
 *
 Try to live within your means,

When the Senate next convenes.
*
We will not live within our means!
I’ll blow the House to smithereens!
The bill is like green eggs and ham!
It is a sham! It is a scam!
I do not give a tinker’s dam!
I do not like it, Babs-I-Am!

My goal is to produce poetical cartoons. I try to
use metaphors and caricatures (or a politician’s own words) to address complex political and social situations. In this way, I sum up current events in humorous verse.
