Spring has sprung
Flowers in bloom
Songs to be sung
Gone winter's gloom

.......Congress is at work

Lass meets the eye
Heart turns to love
In the bye and bye
His brain's mush above

.......Your money to jerk

New baby to feed
His college on hold
For family's needs
A story oft told

.......A new law to pass

Moms rush to be ready
Kids leaving for school
Chaos reigns steady
Just minutes for carpool

.......For more of our cash

Hard job, young father
Anxiety he feels
Strength he must gather
To provide family meals

.......Collect every dime

Dawn, milk the cow
Crops to be sown
Fields ready to plow
Work 'til sundown

.......Create Daylight Savings Time

Arise before light
Not sure why it is
Try with all our might
But ignorance is bliss

.......More taxes to be spent

We'll work 'til sunset
The mortgage to pay
And bills to be met
There's no time to play

.......A bigger National debt

This is great. I love it--love it. Love the form. It tells the story and the back story at the same time. It serves well. Great writing!!

I'm rather slow at catching on - but once when I realized the "italics were telling me something - I saw a brilliant light bulb snap on over my head! Truly a creative piece of artistic poetry with truth, humor, life, and everyday living all in one big Masterpiece! I loved it! Kudos!

PS: This has gotta be a writer who lives in the USA - unless, of course, other countries have a congress that runs up their National Debt like we do. I repeat... Super Job! (*.*)

There is real life then there is the government. I really loved this one.

The cycle of life--one two levels. Nice.
