  • I meant to go to work today
    Began my morn' routine
    But then remembered there is no work
    For reasons I'm still not seein'

    I usually log onto my laptop
    I give that switch a flick
    But that, and my trusty blackberry
    Are now as good as bricks

    So what's the point, what's causing them
    To drag this whole thing on?
    Affordable Care began on schedule
    Admit defeat and move on!

    But cowards must hide behind their masks
    And point the blaming finger
    A leader failed to bring a vote
    And so the shutdown lingers

    I meant to go to work today
    But instead will clean out some rooms
    I'll do some laundry and home repairs
    And sing some furlough tunes
