‘Tis the time around Christmas and all through the night,
I’m still struggling with the HealthCare.gov website.
But the season is lovely with its gifts and its luster,
Even better this year with no filibuster.
The members are nestled all snug in their districts,
On a very brief break from political cheap tricks.
They’ve just settled in, turned away from their labors;
No speeches, no meetings, not even fundraisers.
But on the TV, there arises a clatter
(I forgot I’ve left on the cable-news chatter).
