Betty’s birthday haiku

Betty White, Jan. 17, 1922

Betty White, 90:
Shows us how to keep going,
Laughing, having fun

Betty White, great roles:
Snide Sue Ann, Golden Girl Rose,
Host of SNL

Betty White, great looks:
Once a babe, always a babe
She likes hearing that

Betty White, roll on:
But the prez wants to see your
Birth certificate

Come January

Come January
“Socialist” president says
Let’s cut heating aid

Come January
We’ll save 2 billion dollars
Presto! So simple!

Come January
That one cold budget number
Will make warm tears flow

Come January
The average heating aid check
Will be half last year’s

Come January
Thousands in one small state, Maine,
Will run out of heat

Come January
Average Bangor low will be
Just 7°

Come January
They’ll hear the jeers: “Get a job.”
“Too bad you’re lazy.”

Come January
Most of them will go to work
Some have two, three jobs

Come January
They’ll all wonder how to get
Through one more winter

At the holidays
When we are snug, think of them
Come January
