Go Fetch

Many worried people are concerned that we will not be able to pay off the enormous debt President Obama has saddled the country with by passing those enormous stimulus bills that have succeeded in creating $40,000 a year jobs for the bargain price of just $240,000 each, as well as Cash for Clunkers which was so wildly successful it only cost the taxpayers about $24,000 to give buyers a maximum of $4,000 off on the new car. It would have been cheaper, many say, to just give the money away on street corners. Be that as it may, the problem now is we have this enormous debt, and somebody’s got to pay for it. The solution, I believe, is selling our pets to each other for inflated prices. That way, tax revenues increase, since each seller pays taxes on the sale price. If the whole pet owning country engages in this activity, the Obama debt burden would soon be paid off.  



A dog was for sale for a million

No offers came in and so that’s

Why the owner gave up and called Lillian

And traded for two of her cats

One cat was named Miles ‘tother Standish

Five hundred thou each was the price

A half a mil each seemed outlandish

But Miles was especially nice

The notion soon gained wide acceptance

That selling one’s pets for huge sums

Was the way to get out of the debt stance

And see that economy hums

And so Spot and Fido were sold off

For sums that astonished them all

And pretty soon all debt was told off

And kitties were now put and call

The market chimed in and the Dow Jones

Climbed fast and soon saw record heights

As doggies who only could chew bones

Were sold for their barks not their bites

The collapse when it came came most quickly

As shaggy dogs found their way home

And owners, some pleased and some prickly

Got out the dog brushes and comb

It all ended up in our favor

It ended up nice as you please

With an ending one really could savor

With the bag being held by Chinese
