Yellen Wisely Walks Back Biden Knee Jerk of Federal Funds Flowing To Reconstruct Francis Scott Key Bridge


Human beings have a host of reflex actions to stimuli
From the adrenalin response to the need to flee or die
Or the startle or flinch caused by a loud sudden noise
Causing the hearer to lose one’s poise
Or the yawn that overcomes a student listening to a lecture that will not end
The list goes on as means for a body to respond to stimuli life sometimes sends
In the political arena our leaders are often too quick to suffer a knee jerk
Like in the case of a mass shooting, strident calls for gun control to assert
Or if an illegal alien commits a heinous criminal act
Calls to secure the border which we now lack
Our president old and frail who moves at glacial speed
Whose mental acuity too often can’t remember what he needs
Was quick to respond to the bridge collapse hit by the SS Dalia ship in Baltimore
That federal funds would be immediately forthcoming to the bridge restore
Must have been unable to comprehend that the ship owner is at fault
And maritime insurers will most likely have to open their vaults
Yellen was quick to walk back the idea the feds would be writing the checks
The idea the feds were liable she was quick to reject
Biden’s knee jerk on Reagan’s summary of tax policy fits
“If it moves tax it, if it keeps moving regulate it and if it stops moving subsidize it”
Vow to repair and reconstruction pay
Sure sounds like a subsidy coming the ship owner’s way
