DemDaily: Our Holiday Wish

December 19, 2023

Happy Holidays and our thanks to all who have supported DemList over the last year.

Twas the week before Christmas
and throughout the Capitol Chambers,
Congress was carrying out the work
set forth by the Framers.

The great halls would soon be silent,
with the House and Senate on recess,
granted a short reprieve
from the strife, discord and duress.

Candidates were home
all snug in their beds,
with visions of next year's primaries
dancing in their heads.

The voters granted a respite
until the start of the election year,
when the battles begin anew
the lines already clear.

To Uncle Joe and Dr. Jill
Many gifts Santa will bring,
While Johnson and McConnell
count coal grumbling.

The battle for the soul
of our nation, it appears,
is still playing out
in division and fear,

Over what defines
the American way,
and whether Democracy
will rule the day.

May we all be grateful
for the gift of voice,
that we live in a country
where we have a choice.

So before we go back
to our partisan ways,
may peace and compassion
guide your days.

Until January 3rd then,
when we begin a new year,
We bid you rest,
reflection and good cheer.

Connecting You to The Party
Connecting You to Each Other
