We Cannot Be the World's Brothers' Keeper

Sadly compromise from the Blues is a gigantic fable
It’s Pelosi’s way or we do not go to the bargaining table
The Stimulus Bill ramroded by the Blues knowing it would be in the Senate DOA
We are in a CV crisis and from the Blues all we get is same old politics on display
Compromise to Pelosi is a dirty word and with the election so near she partisanship will advance
Hobbling effort to find common ground to not let the recovery die but to continue its slow advance
The great job killer to keep people from going back to work
An unemployment compensation plan gone berserk
The $600 a week unemployment bonus has expired
Blues demanding it be restored to mid 2021 even if the pandemic has been retired
Movement by the Reds to increase their 200 to 6 but then phase it out
But another roadblock to coming to the table as recovery problems will mount
Pelosi is aping Gruesome Newsom and wants illegals to get checks
Noble goal to be world’s brothers’ keeper but with our debt we must reject
Americans other that politicians who are getting paid their full wage
Are in a world of hurt as around them worry and economic uncertainty rage
Another example that this election is the most important in our lifetime
Do we remain locked in resistance or do we with compromise out of this recession climb
What is needed is to the House flip, Senate and Oval Office maintain our grip
Let the winds of recovery and end to divisiveness really rip
