DemDaily: Our Holiday Wish

December 22, 2021

Twas days before Christmas
and throughout the Senate and House,
not a staffer was stirring,
nor moving a mouse.

The great halls were silent,
with Congress on recess,
granted a short reprieve
from the strife and stress.

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

The voters left alone
until the start of the election year,
when the battles begin anew
the lines already clear.

To Uncle Joe and Dr. Jill
A new kitty Santa will bring,
While scrooges McConnell and McCarthy
count coal grumbling.

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

Over what defines
the American way,
according to the press,
people or politicians,
and the issue of 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.

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