Eye On Boise

An ode to the 2007 Idaho Legislature

Out on the Moyle highway
You’ll need no social engineer
It’s a slippery slope where they tax your food
And the end of the session is near.

There will be no smoking while bowling
But they’ll try to keep mom at home
Here at the Idaho Statehouse
Mini-wings will sprout from the dome.

So watch for the nose of that camel
It’s poking right under your tent
Sit back and enjoy the politics
And watch where your tax dollars went.

- Betsy Z. Russell
