You just killed your sixth PBR
And surely you can’t drive a car
A bike’s your resort?
Heck no, says the Court
You might as well sleep at the bar

The Council made up for lost time
By voting that weed ain’t a crime
Get in on the icky
By being a sickie
(No love for you folks in your prime)

And speaking of lives that are charmed
Don’t worry! Kal Penn wasn’t harmed!
The star of the Castle
Was given a hassle
By some dude who’s stupid, but armed

The House bill’s untimely demise
Struck many as quite the surprise
The gun-control laws
Got stuck in the jaws
Of serious N.R.A. guys
