Congress Must Now Fly Coach

 If Our Military Has to Fly Coach Then So Should Congress Act
A glimmer of hope that bipartisanship is coming back
Introduced in the House by 2 Blues and 2 Reds
Give a taste to our Millionaires Club of air service we mortals dread
Maybe only symbolic as act may not first class upgrades curtail
But an improvement beyond Pelosi's military jet usage beyond the pale
Will be interesting to see if King Reid will allow Senate to act
Some hope to put fiscal discipline on the right track
Wonder if the pols by being forced to fly in back
Struggling to put carry ons in the overhead racks
Or stuck in a middle seat sandwiched in between
An obese passenger and a mother and baby not yet weaned
Feeling the circulation slowly dying to one’s feet
Really missing the comfort of a first class seat
Will get nickeled and dimed like the rest of the mortal multitude
Think about laws to prevent airline gouging and making flying like servitude
