Look!  Look!  The Fiscal Cliff Moved Temporally

Every day on the Daily Poet we present the day's news in poetry form.  Do you want to play too?  Simply pick a news item and place your poem in the comments below.  Poetry and news.  These two were meant to be wed.  Today, a haiku.

The new year is here
Happy New Year!

Our politicians did
the unthinkable deed

and finally decided
that they all agreed

unfortunately that means
that they did not

decide to take themselves
right over a cliff

So now in two months
we get the same tiff

The fiscal cliff moved
