National Debt 2019-015

The national debt clock (at usdebtclock.org) shows an updated figure and is continual, based on spending and also includes revenue and other neat facts to know. I encourage anyone to go there and see for yourself, what our leaders have done, good or bad, for our grandchildren to try and pay for and is theirs to ponder in the future.

 

National Debt  2019-015

 

An obscene figure

I can tell you for sure,

One that will stay

with us, forever more.

Our lawmakers have taught us

spending’s not hard.

We even do it now

with our own credit cards.

It is a law, I’m told

that it must be paid back

But, by whom though, and

in what year, in fact?

 

They, in Congress, deserve the barbs,

the cruel cartoons, and other such.

For being so very irresponsible

and careless, so much.

The money we earn

and send to Uncle Sam

Is spent so very fast

With a “I don’t give a damn”

The National Debt is

a disgrace and a shame,

But, look in the mirror

and take part of the blame.

 

You keep re-electing the

same people – over and over

Isn’t it about time to

send some –out to the clover.

It is time for a change

and to get some new blood

Before the monster debt

buts us in a quagmire of mud

Do something about it

and take some credit

For being a person

who hates the national dept.

 

In January 2019 it stood at $21,966,016,300,

an obscene number, that keeps growing daily.
