Ballad of the DC Sequester Dustbowl

They used to tell me I was building a dream
I joined the President’s mob
There were rules to make and budgets to spend
At my EPA, it was my job

They used to tell me I was building a dream
With hope and change straight ahead
But now that Sequester has cut 2 percent
The dream is now dead

Once I built an Amtrak
Made it run, well sometimes
Once I built an Amtrak, but now no more funds
Brother can you spare a dime?

Once I built a highway
Brick and mortar and lime
It had an off-ramp to a bridge to nowhere
Brother can you spare a dime?

Once in business suits, gee we looked swell
Dishing out those Stimulus funds
A half a billion bucks for Solyndra to hell
And now I can’t regulate guns

Oh, say don’t you remember? They called me ‘Jess’
It was ‘Jess’ all the time
I did audits for the IRS
Buddy, can you spare a dime?
