O how they cling and wrangle, some who claim
For preacher and monk the honored name!
For, quarreling, each to his view they cling.
Such folk see only one side of a thing.
So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen!
I don’t think there is a better way to describe the Democratic vs Republican wrangling on the economic stimulus plan.
Although, I am unable to make up my mind as to whether the leaders of this country are simply blind or have monochromatic vision compounded by exceedingly narrow minds.
In the end the Elephant will fall,
But on the way it will crush us all!
(Pardon the little rhyme and pun there)
