Every year, one member of the recently criticized White House press corps writes a holiday poem for its annual party.

USA Today reports that SRN News radio correspondent Greg Clugston wrote the poem this year.

The piece made references to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s slight against Big Bird and actor Clint Eastwood‘s infamous conversation with an empty chair. Here’s an excerpt:

“Republicans eyed victory — there was change in the air,
In Tampa, Clint Eastwood conversed with a chair.
Romney rose in the polls and enjoyed his ascent,
But, oh, how he stumbled with “47 percent.”
