Poetry, Parker, and Obamacare

Kathleen Parker has a column in WaPo headlined: "The poetry of bad news around Obamacare"

Of course, I was suckered into reading it...

Hoping that she had taken to verse...

But, no.

Actually, what she's referring to is the fact that the law rewards not working. And she zooms in on a particular form of not working as worthy of scorn:

"In an earlier iteration, Pelosi even suggested that Obamacare would allow people to quit their awful jobs to write poetry."

As for me, I think I'll keep my job,
along with the rest of the toiling mob,
and work at rhyme
in my spare time.
