Cloture


The Senatorial grindstone has produced a slow-mo show.
Is it health care for the masses, or the end of the world we know?
Will it save us lives and dollars, as the months stretch into years,
Or are tea-bag shouts and hollers right to call forth all our fears?

There’s a battle raging, surely, for the public heart and mind.
Pundits, pollsters get up early in the hopes that they will find
Your opinion turning slowly toward support or toward rejection
Of the most important matter: not your health! The next election.
