23rd Qualm

Because of my mayor; I dwell in want

He maketh rates to send me broke

He leadeth developers into the beach fronts

He restoreth my fears

He leadeth me in the paths of national ridicule for his ego's sake

Yea, though I walk through the valley of concrete and highrise, I will find no exit, for he art in office

Thy closed council meetings and dispensation of contracts, discomforts me

Thou preparest a hidden agenda in the presence of thy council

Thou anointest my head with intimidation

My money runneth out

Surely poverty and disaster shall follow me all the days of thy term


(with apologies to 23rd Psalm - sent to me by someone early last year after the the Mayor's Yasser Arafat incident and the rates rise.)
