Government Shutdown

Fright Night (1985) Banner courtesy of Classic Film Lovers’ Haven

Hold the cross up
to keep The Government vampires away

Be brave “They” say
for it’s not our fault
this heinous thing has happened

Open the door or window
and let us explain
our reasons

Or wait it out
for the sun and
the sane to reappear

Meanwhile sure hope
you’re prepared

For it’s not like you weren’t warned!
