Two Empty Chairs for Chuck and Nancy

In a debate that an opponent has dodged what tact should one take
To show the voters that voting for such opponent would be a big mistake?
Put at the dais or the table a placard with the opponent’s name and an empty chair
To reinforce the reality that the opponent is missing in action and not there
Americans have never like cowards or those who from the truth want to hide
The night becomes a golden opportunity for one to his or her opponent deride
The photo op yesterday afternoon at the White House where leaders gathered keep the ship of state afloat
Two empty chairs with placards for Pelosi and Schumer who clearly had missed the boat
While Trump and his Reds were there to work on tax cuts and a funding resolution
To keep the government running despite obstruction as a temporary solution
But Pelosi and Schumer arrogantly blew this nation off
Just as the nation expecting tax cuts is on a roll due to Obama regs Trump has doffed
The Blues’ empty chairs
Goes with growth cupboard ideas bare
Two spoiled brats angry they do not have a starring role
Hoping against hope no tax cuts so we will not achieve Trump’s 4+ % growth goal.
Wanting to sell their souls in exchange for the two leadership chairs
Left behind as the economy finally surges forward into prosperity’s rarefied air
