A friend I was camping with brought up the threat Obama made about the debt due in August. He sugested after long conversations about the whole thing someone should write a poem about it doncha think Art? So I did. Art

It's time for us to take the Reins

I heard our president the other day- and could not believe what he had to say
The threat was scary and real as hell to me- the image of the devastating result, I could clearly see
         A warning they say it was meant to be- yet the potential chaos looms over us threateningly
            If the debt is not timely laid to rest- the tenacity of our citizens will be put to the test

As for me a disabled Vietnam vet the bubble may burst-as they usually cut government benefits first
     but that won’t dent this debt hardly a bit-cause it’s been ignored a long time in the name of profit
all “The People” will suffer in varied ways-as our leaders always use us somehow to get the bills paid
So we’d better let them know that we expect:
Our elected heads with their power and might-to get together and  plan a timely 
Wholly Victorious Fight !

ROCK-Salt! 7/11

We as a whole can make things happen!
After all it does say *of the people* by the people and *for the people.

Good one Rock - It's time to let this worry go. Threats are a way to intimadate folks. Worry can cause bad things to happen. Let's sit tight and see what happens. Tell it to the world.
