Thank you all for coming to this City Council meeting.
Today’s topic will be completing the receipt
to fill in the concrete that the streets are needing.
Sitting at the seat of District 3, I feel the heat
to complete this bill. I’ve seen it in action; these potholes kill.
But we need to assess the mess and make sure
there’s no excess in our spending.
The press is unending when they’re condescending to us,
we need our address to be best.
Councilman Cress! We still have to try to buy the supplies
so a kid doesn’t scrape his knee and cry!
So a driver doesn’t go off-road and die!
It doesn’t matter how much it costs to buy,
and that’s the reason why! Open your eyes!
I’ve opened my eyes! And by the by,
you need to get your head out of the sky!
Use your head and calculate the overhead expenses!
Until then our defense is to put up signs stating,
“Road Work Ahead!”
That will stop everyone from ending up dead!
And what if you’re wrong, Councilman Cress?
Is that your best guess to avoiding the mess
we would get into if this isn’t a success?
We’d have to confess to the press about the mess!
The stress would put this administration to a halt!
So if someone skids on the broken asphalt,
it’d be your fault!
Councilman Galt! You’re treating this problem
like it’s an assault! Pole vaulting over the arguments
I provide! It’s like you’re hiding the fact
that you want our treasury to default!
Cress! Galt! I need to establish order in this meeting,
the debate is heating, and I don’t want anyone
to be pressed into halting their best verbal assaults!
This meeting is adjourned, I hope we’ve learned
a bit more of where everyone’s concerned.
We’ll come back in fifteen minutes.
Carolyn Parkhurst, my mother. She is the one who provides the greatest inspiration for me in my writing and my life.
I wish to become a TV writer and producer.
My mother, as mentioned above. Also, my father and all of my surrounding family.
