The President Tells Assembly

The president
Tells Assembly
We shall import
Toothpicks

Assembly replies
Of course
We have a tradition
To import everything

O yes
That is quite true
We even import paraffin
From sold crude oil

Smart Assembly men
Says he
That is how it shall be
An import intensive economy

Back slaps of joy
As the House closes
Happy senators
Leave the Assembly

The president
Checks the time
A fine wristwatch sir
A senator observes

Thank you
It is gold all through
And as you may guess
It is imported too
