Budget Deadlock Haiku

So often we are visited by the specter a possible government shutdown, I hesitate to add even a single word to the flood of opinion. The Commentary River always goes over its banks when politics and money are churning.

Maybe we should impose strict verbal austerity measures by limiting commentary to a simple haiku.

Use your talking points.
Three lines, five, seven and five.
No new syllables!

Gold Horses look down
No one can clean their stable.
Mountains of manure!

My closed state park is
Beautiful without me there
Or so I suppose.

Government is the
problem that cannot be solved
with just a hammer.

Here’s a compromise.
You can adopt my viewpoint
Any time you like
