Burning Down the House

May 15th, 2012

Inspired by Mitt Romney’s speech in Des Moines today.

 

“When the men and women who settled the Iowa prairie saw a fire in the distance, they didn’t look around for someone else to save them or go back to sleep hoping the wind might blow another direction. They knew that their survival was up to them. A prairie fire of debt is sweeping across Iowa and our nation and every day we fail to act that fire gets closer to the homes and children we love.” — Mitt Romney in Des Moines today

 

See that prairie fire, way over there?

Shouldn’t we about that fire care?

 

Yes, but before we to fighting that fire get around,

Can we please stop our house from burning down?

 

And maybe, Mitt, America should pass

On your plan to put out those fires with gas.
