Corruption

Oh, for goodness sake

The mayor is on the take

But that's not all at City Hall

So, voters, be awake



Each year you pay your tax

Then, think you can relax

They spend and spend like there's no end

We need the old Ajax



So, citizens unite

This mess we've got to fight

Let's sweep ‘em out, yes, every lout

Just doin' what seems right



"I'm an honest politician

I'm really in remission"

The mayor cried, asmore he lied

And knelt in deep submission



It was our common stance

To make the mayor dance

But, come November, just remember

He'll ask for one more chance

Walter, yours is a heroic stand against corruption
like that of Ajax himself!! I know that there's no better shield than one's honesty. Nevertheless, please accept these decorations as a token of my endless support to you in your brave enterprise..

Ha!!! Cleverly done, Bahadir. I should have thought to better protect myself before launching my crusade. There is one piece of vital armour that is missing, however, since a threatened politician can retaliate in unorthodox ways.

Thanks for the laugh-out-loud redo!

Walter, I am having so much fun watching this thread! It qualifies since the cleaning supplies are common household items. But the thread has gone beyond that. I am wondering what the city fathers would say if they saw this. I think they would have a real belly laugh!.

You've got my vote Walter. You better get that stuff back home before your wife finds out.
