A light piece of verse, but heavy hearted, from the direction of the US. Many people have wondered why the government can do what they can't personally in their finances. It's a legitimate question, which I ask in poetic form.
I'LL SPEND MORE MONEY
by J. Randal Matheny
Today I got my statement from the bank,
It must have been an error or a prank.
My plump account was plainly in the red,
I thought I had a hefty surplus instead.
But how to fix the problem is perfectly clear:
I'll spend more money, rather than be austere.
If Barry's plan will heal the country's woe,
Why won't it work for me? I'd like to know!
