Hi, sports fans, it’s the fourth quarter between
the University of Republicans,
and the University of Democrats.
Neither side seems to know
how to play this game.
If they don’t manage to get their signals straight,
the whole country might be thrown into sudden death.
Neither side seems capable of
organizing a drive to save the country.
Each side features stars running amok,
each side forgetting that the game must
be played in bounds within the halls of Congress.
One team makes an end run around reason;
the other side fumbles the ball at the goal line.
How long can we have the two sides
competing in mortal combat?
Even in football, time expires, eventually,
and the teams shake hands and go home.
Yet, the country’s political football games
go on far into the night.
Who would have thought the players were capable
of shutting down the whole NFL?
