I neede to add a line. This is for you Tom!

Merry Xmass to all in the Burg
For The FBI is bringing the Surg
With gang bangers and dealers Out
We will see who is left with all the Clout
Bye Bye Louney and Tasca Too
For this is a Mayor Wong Coo
There may be no Light
For we need to repair the Blight
Here comes Kaddy w/a big fat Paddy
Oh, It is Tasca,Louney and Obrien in their Cady
Ho Ho Ho it is Santa Claus give him some applause
For it is Chief Donovan to Investigate
Before it is too late we will see their fate
The Cady full of the "Goood ole Boys"
They are breaking all the laws to buy more toys
Say Good bye to all the "ole boys" who Lie
About taking too much of the Pie

As Tasca and Louney share a cell

Say Hi to all the criminals in Hell

Kaddy and Kearns will come to visit

As they call Wong a Misfit

But when all is said and done Mayor Wong

will have a song that will be sung

For Good riddens to the "good ole boys"

As I have fun with all your confiscated Toys

You thought you could retire Now Big Bubba is

calling you Mariah

Your poem is in poor taste. Apparently you didn't grow up during the Depression, when the foolishness that you write about would be scoffed as unimportant.
If you want to celebrate Christmas, share the joy and wonder of the season with thoughts of good cheer. Even Ebeneezer Scrooge finally understood what Christmas was suppose to be about. Get a clue before it's too late for you!

Racial because that what comes to your mind when you hear the word spade. The poem is not out of context, till someone like you links it so. Guessing your golden age, that what you use to call black people,not the writer.

Glad some of you enjoyed this poem...Those of you that did not, to each his own..Come on now, we all have some sense of humor in us. I was having fun and many liked it around my area. It's a good time to have fun with words. And for the guy who says I need to go back to school...I happen to be currently enrolled in the Institute of Children's Literature. Just so happens that that was where the author of Harry Potter started and got her degree. Apparently they think I have talent. When you see my name again remember that SOME thought I was talented...Merry XMAS!!

sometimes words just mean what they say - the poem is about it being dark as in absence of light - you must be part of the politically correct crowd that reads something into nothing. Get a life!

Everyone knows that the Mayor is well intentioned but in over her head...the city is in crisis and needs a team of experts to come in and help....at this point the drug heroin is running the city and the streets are dark and dangerous and there is very little progress being made. It isn't the fault of Wong, but she wants to be the big shot and people are going to dump on her more and more as the situation gets worse. The library was once the crown jewel of the city and now it is a big bad joke. The high school is basically in Ashby and that is good for the kids and their parents. This is an emergency and our congresspeople should be blamed for ignoring. Even Leominster's Mayor could not handle such a large disaster, although he probably could bring up morale if he took over. It's an ugly problem that grows nastier as the days go by.

Tom is your typical pasrtisan republican. As long as the person has the little "r" after their name they can do no wrong.

JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter graduated in 1987 from the University of Exeter with a degree in French and Classics. She did not “get her degree” from a scam correspondence course like the Institute for Children’s Literature.

And she would never have written such a bad poem.
