It aPIERs To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It aPIERs to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look at the Dow thir’ty, 1600 looks so pretty
With so many new highs aglow.
 
It aPIERs to look a lot like Christmas
Consumers in the stores,
But the prettiest sight to see, is the housing recovery
right outside your doors.  
 
A budget deal that works, Heathcare.gov without quirks
Is the wish of Boehner and Harry;
A debt-default balk and Palestinian players in talks
Are the hopes of Barack and Kerry;
And Repubs and Dems ~ can hardly wait ~ for midterms to start again.
 
It aPIERs to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
The unemployment rate, it fell; continuing claims as well,
& building’s up despite the snow.
 
It aPIERs to look a lot like Christmas
Soon ‘14 will start,
And the beginning of it should zing, if Christmas sales continue to ring
From the gifts within your cart.
 
 
Happy Holidays and best wishes for a fantastic New Year,
