As they flail at the deficit crunch,

The let's-shrink-the-government bunch

Wants new diet rules

For mealtime in schools --

From now on, kids, let's not do lunch.

An American axiom sez

Anyone can aspire to be Prez;

For proof, take a glance

At some people in pants

Who pant for a White House addrez.

* * *

The look that preceded the leap

Led to Dan Quayle's decision to keep

His malaprop self

Back home on the shelf

In case he is asked to re-veep.
