Buzz Ballad: Let it Burn!

Seeing as how it's the holiday season:

Let it Burn! Let it Burn! Let it Burn!

---apologies to Sammy Cahn, Jule Styne, and "Let it Snow!"

Oh, the fiscal precipice is looming

A crisis the President's been grooming

And since there's nowhere to turn,

Let it burn! Let it burn! Let it burn!

No, Obama is not intending

To rein in his runaway spending

He just wants to punish those who earn;

Let it burn! Let it burn! Let it burn!

Yes, we're facing fiscal collapse

The predictions will be fulfilled

But if we get over with it, perhaps

The sooner we can start to rebuild

Since the executive of the nation

Won't engage in negotiation

His proposals then must be spurned

Let it burn! Let it burn! Let it burn!
