Congressional Transparency Limerick

There’s a wacky thread on the Open House List of poems for transparency, so I gave it a try. (In fairness, I should say I used an electronic pronunciation dictionary to find some of the rhymes.)

There once was a man named Mike Honda,
A congressman us geeks are quite fond ‘a,
In markup sessions takes on the chairman, a hulk,
so that we the people can get our data in bulk.

His friend maverick Joe likes transparency too,
Senate votes in XML he says long overdue,
At party politics he snorts,
Because the public should see those CRS reports.

And last we hear of the executive’s new plan,
For a CTO and CIO…
…perhaps YesWeScan?
