The pope arrived in Washington and captivated the city.
To Congress he proposed the Golden Rule
Which they bottled up in committee.

As Francis spoke, John Boehner wept
So moving, you had to love it.
The next day, Boehner still inspired
Said, "take this job and shove it".

By the end of October he'll fade away
A victim of party friction.
Boehner's on his way out as the tea party says,
"Cancel the crucifixion."
