Beltway Blizzard Blues

Routine inside the Beltway matters

Until a touch of winter shatters

The very order of society

Is felled by angst and high anxiety

 

K Street Suits are in a muddle

Two feet of snow is not a puddle

Limos idle, the Metro slows

How to shovel no one knows

 

Rank and rules first quake then crumble

Scions fume and cabbies grumble

Congress staffers wander halls

No one emails, no one calls

 

The media are in their glory

As they narrate the epic story

Of hopes destroyed and votes not cast

Of absent members, bills not passed

 

Should they declare this a disaster

Or would tabling it be faster

Or could this be just Nature’s curse

Reminding us it could be worse?

    Thank you for the smile, close to audible guffaw. >

  2. Mary,

    I just opened and read your email entitled Beltway Blizzard Blues.

    You are so creative as well as being exceptionally smart!

    How are you doing? We must chat more often to see what one another thinks, experiences, knows, remembers, . . .

    Dear Catherine took me to an M.D. yesterday and just now I don’t remember who, what or why . . .
