Them PHS60 webloggers,
both silent types and pettifoggers,
have rallied around
a cause as profound
as funding another half-decade of PHS60 website content and all the good things – and other things too sometimes – that it augers.
[Just this quickly, I’ve received pledges from 9 classmates; hoping for a total of 20. We’re approximately 46% of the way to our goal, and the sun ain’t set on Day 2. Thanks y’all.]
"'Tis The Season" [published Dec. 11, 2014]
‘Twas the night of sequester and all thru the House
Parried Dems & Republicans, minions and mouths.
The stock in their competence waxed, then it waned.
Ere long my scant confidence entirely drained.
Would country survive this long, contentious night?
Did anyone care who was wrong or who right?
Were our country’s finest a’split or uniting?
Would we see an end to their partisan fighting?
Then word from on high - just to help with the scorin' -
Sprang from the warm heart of Elizabeth Warren.
Consenting to guide or to chide or deride,
She seemed as forlorn as a church-jilted bride.
Then what to my wondering eyes should appear
But Obama and Boehner a’grin ear to ear.
I saw both exhausted but seeming alright.
I witnessed a true Christmas miracle tonight.
Such difference a day, or election day, makes.
Despite learning nothing from prior mistakes.
I take this plain lesson from such folderol:
I wish Peace on Earth, and Good Will to all.
May your days be merry and bright. MAGFAY
