Legislative limerick No. 1: May is on the way

It's long been the custom for Statehouse reporters to don ugly ties when the legislative session stretches overly long, in hopes that the garish neckwear will so disgust and offend lawmakers that they'll wrap up their business and get out of town. I've taken a different route in recent years, turning instead to bad rhymes designed for similar effect. So with all apologies, here's my first legislative limerick of the 2012 session:

May is on the way...

Idaho's political round
Is clearly closed-primary bound.
When hot-button issues
Mean get out the tissues
It's lawmaking in ultrasound.
