Burnt Toast

WASHINGTON (AP) – Even as Republicans publicly welcome President Barack Obama's call for a bipartisan confab on health care, some privately worry that he might be laying a trap to portray their ideas as flimsy.

Pre-game jitters
make Republicans
pre-accuse Obama
of pre-entrapment.

Why? They know
they might do better
as pre-burnt toast.
Onto the back lawn

they now must go as
media squirrels await,
their noses twitching,
tails thrashingly alert.
