Requiem for Second Ward
The other day as we walked
Joel and Jess, my friends, we talked.
Money issues, they did arise
Budgets to balance, we’d heard the cries.
Cash was short, expenses were high
The Council Six, they wouldn’t lie?
The previous Man said we weren’t broke
But Reed, and Jim, and I, we spoke.
New computers and a 4 percent raise
The Council Six said were all the craze.
Overspending is the cause; you see
Lack of ownership is all it can be!
Excess money was found in the bank
A new commission we had to thank.
To Joel and Jess this money to keep
While taxpayers would only sit and weep.
The Council Six no mistakes to confess
Were duped to believe in this mess.
While legal it is, this money can stay
Give it back, to the citizens, I say.
Choose wisely the hole you are to fill
This dishonesty, we must kill.
Shy away from the Old Guard want
Their candidate “Just won’t hunt.”
Put your voice in the vacant seat
To represent you, turn up the heat.
