Ode to Congress (A Poem)

This holiday season, fret not over what your congress is doing, for they are making up silly poems about the house rules on gift exchanges. For all those curious about the poetic skills of our national representatives, look no further.

Well, what grade would you give this poem? Hopefully it ranks higher than the current congressional approval ratting of 9.1%.

Hey congress, if you need a new job after the next election, you could always go into writing poetry.
