For the mantle of leadership when,
As the President knows,
He'll have to propose
A successor to Fed Chairman Ben.
It's increasingly frequently said
By economists very well read
That Obama may stiff
The recovery if
He picks the wrong head of the Fed.
Dr. Yellen's CV is the nicest
To manage employment and prices
From the days when she ran
The Fed bank in San
Francisco and warned of the Crisis.
Dr. Summers has those who would vote 'im
'Cause his "gravitas" serves to promote 'im,
While other folks showed
That's really a code
For the candidate having a scrotum.
Whatever your partisan views
On the better of qualified Jews,
It's the President's pick
And we'll know pretty quick
The mensch that Obama may choose.
