The government – shutdown!
800,000+ employees let down,
No paychecks to pay bills,
Due to a wall and battle of wills,
Today marks 34 days and counting,
The consequences are mounting,
If things go too much more,
Outrage will turn into an uproar,
On the government may folks depend,
The spat between parties must end,
Neither side have spoken,
America is heartbroken,
There needs to be a compromise,
They seem hellbent on otherwise,
America is tired of this pissing match,
Where is our escape hatch?
President Trump is to blame,
Democrats and Republicans? The same!
