On the twelfth day of Christmas

my representative gave to me…


A cut in jobless pay,


27% Doc Fix,


2% more in FICA,


5% less in Cap gains,


An 8% taller bracket,


About half of my dividends,


An Unbridled AMT,


Chancy Med deductions,


Insecure Estate tax,


Dicey Mortgage interest,


Shaky donor abatement,


And a total loss of faith in DC
