UR Opinion

A Dirge

John McCormick

By John McCormick


A Council once called
" City Fathers"
Took little pay and
Built things that mattered.
Now only evidence
Mass destruction..
Schools, Arenas,
Giant Arks
Of former glory.
All turned into
Useless parks
A sorry story.
Good people too
Who got in the way
Were demolished;
Some with severance pay.
An election looms,
Whom to select?
Look carefully
Before you elect
Ones like these,
A City Sleeps
A City Weeps.

John McCormick
