Fireside Chats in July
You must listen closely
As our menu has changed with
Power outages and that sort of thing.
Your screen saver will keep
The fire roaring without the heat
So you can turn on the fan.
And listen closely for signs
The Recession is over — you have
Done well to stomach budget cuts
That are coming, take them as
Fire crackers on the Fourth
In Times Square
Suitably restricted of course.
