A little Holiday Poem:
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

Poet, You may have to change a verse or two as it is rumored of a Kearns Firing!!!

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!!
Jess you never respond to your own editorials in defense of what is already written and said among others and explain personal things in a public forum. Opens you up to the wrong critics. The poem was appropriate, as you are not the only one who thinks Wong was the Grinch who stole fitchburg! It was also funny how everyone is now a poet also. YOU OWE APOLOGIES TO NO ONE!

Once again, Christmas time is here,
But instead of joy, some malcontents would rather boo and jeer.

Complain, complain and complain some more,
They are negative people down to the core.

Criticize, whine, piss and moan,
But god forbid they come with a solution of their own

Why try to come together and work through the tough times,
When its much easier to put down others with silly rhymes?

There is a saying that any donkey can knock down a wall,
But it takes a carpenter to build one, taking time so it won’t fall.

Yes, we have a new mayor who has to clean a mess,

And for long term health, we must temporarily sacrifice with less.

For far too long the Good ‘Ol Boys let our finances slide,

Now we finally have a leader that wont run and hide.

She makes the tough choices, unpopular but needed,

For in the past, the writing on the walls went unheeded.

So we all have a choice to be part of the problem or the cure,

We have a tough road to hoe, and it won’t be easy – for sure.

But by sticking together with a positive view,

We can rebuild our village with pride and prosperity too.

Afterall, Christmas is not all about colorful lights,

Its about the birth of a savior who taught us to live right.

So lets quell the complaining about things that are small and petty,

And lets look to a grand future, and say "Yes we are ready!"

Mayor Wong is the only person who can make decisions that can help Fitchburg. People that post are important. These are the ones who are active!
I state that everyone needs to write the FBI and bring notice of the problems in Fitchburg. The Tax payer pays for this FPD brass! The Tax payer deserves answers to their legitimate concerns!
The residents of Fitchburg are tired of the same old!! If the Mayor, the chief and the councelmen cannot fix these problems then they need to step aside so those of us can make the decisions that need to be made!
There are allot of patrolmen that need to leave along with this corrupt brass. Getting rid of these inept cops/criminals is mandatory in order to begin to fix anything!
Is the Fitchburg residents see that the Mayor is going to make strong moves and fire those in the FPD that are in the way of crime solving,disrespectful,law breaking and rude; then you will see the wave of citizen involvement!

Well, the poem did sound like it was written by a child, so that makes sense.

Allowing this poem to be published has it's obvious motivations! For one Mayor Wong is not a controversial mayor. She is cleaning a mess that previous Mayors and councelmen left behind.

Great post Kevin!! I also thought the headline was outrageous. If she is controversial, it's only due to the fact that she is actually doing a good job at cleaning up years of mismanagement.

Wong is a very powerful politician just due to the fact that her name can illicit 49 comments to one playful poem that doesn't carry much weight. Of course it's easy to point to any move in politics and say they're just doing it to further their career. This is the definition of politics. Get your head out of the altruistic dunk tank..or read a bit of history first.

having said that..it's always refreshing to see a mayor make major sweeping changes right out of the gate. I think most take the route of trying to get reelected far too soon, or before they've done anything substantial. Wong is making the tough decisions and isn't thinking about job security.

I don't agree with this poem as it was obviously mea wasnt in oposition to Mayor Wong. The roads are clear. She has been cutting cost. The street lights were controversial as the streets are dark and dangerous.
If everyone remembers Fitchburg was bankrupt before Mayor Wong. The Fitchburg Police department was a big part in the destruction of Fitchburg.
Everybody was stealing from this department and the treasury.
A lot has changed in 4 years huh?
