To Sign or Not to Sign (more apologies to Shakespeare!)

To sign or not to sign this stimulus bill
What a silly question!
For surely tis nobler in the mind to let the peons suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous taxes
And to take arms against capitalism
And by opposing end it
To sign, to spend
And by spending we do end
The thousand points the Dow was up by; tis a fate
Devoutly to be wished; to sign, to spend
To spend, perhaps to tax; aye, that’s the ticket
For in that spending what delights may come;
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil
There’s the thought that our grandchildren
Would bear the whips and scorns of debt
The oppressor’s wrong, the corrupt man’s destruction
The pangs of despised taxes, the law’s oppression
The insolence of the office of the president
For taxpayers this heady task do take
