Although it takes no genius to see
finances are in a mess U.S.
the downgrade confuses me I must confess.
When Standard and Poor announced the drop
many asked whether President Deven Sharma had blown his top.
He admitted to what he called a trivial mistake
of the kind, he claimed, anyone could make.
It was only a $2 trillion error and should not cause a fuss
just because someone wrote a minus instead of a plus.
