Police and fire chiefs ask for more resourcesIt appears the MAYOR is again blaming the school
Clearly playing the citizens for fools.
In growth are city is not alone
Still answers others have shown.
No one has as large of a problem with school spending net
As our city always seems to get.
She advocates changing NSS how the do calculate
So teachers would become irate
And LPS's budget bear the burden of the brunt
See crying foul is no more than a publicity stunt
Either way the city will lose
It's just who to layoff you choose.
Only turns out it's not how we're livin'.
To explain the brazen attacks
Required the use of alternative facts.
In an attempt for political cover
Sacrificing the grief of a mother.
Sorrow may be expressed,
The sincerity to be guessed.

The choking smell of exhaust
Has replaced the odor
Of award-winning vegetables
Growing on the asphalt.
The humming of the diesel engines
Drowned out the not
So silent protests destined
For ears unprepared to hear.
Days of salad off in the distance
As if history had not been remembered
And could be rewritten, resurrected
In order to stroke swollen egos.

When the mayor and others say that crime is like a stumbling block and say that this isn’t Lynn — as if we aren’t Lynn. This is where we live, this is our community. Those statements sounded like Lenny and his friend deserved what they got because they might have known these people.”
It's all in who you know
For respect some to show.
Says more about them than you
Cause respect for life no clue.
A position without shame
When the victim you choose to blame.
Now I usually don't like lawyers as a rule
But to ignore the obvious would make a fool.
Turns out there's a candidate in my ward
Against costs we cannot afford.
He asks questions that I have asked
On the costs we are tasked.
The answers may be at the state not the city
Still not to raise them would be a pity.

Calling the violence RANDOM to make me feel better only makes it worse
When it comes time for re-election this will be your curse.
For danger that comes without prepare
Leads to constant need to beware.
Trying to shift the blame
Always brings more shame.
As long as responsibility you abdicate
The violence will only escalate.
