September 4, 2018 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Newspaper Carriers Day

For Chicago as mayor Rahm Emanuel has been a disaster
During his tenure the gun violence he could not master
Too many people of color were killing people of the same color of skin
Murder stalked the streets daily and safety could not win
Emanuel was viewed as helpless and seemed to the victims blame
The defenseless citizens were to the thugs fair game
As Chicago descended into a pock marked hell
Growing resentment over the lack of leadership of Emanuel
Today he delivered to the Windy City a surprise shock
An announcement that reelection to another term he would not stalk
After protests over violence smart enough to believe voters would balk
Knowing his credibility leaks from his election boat he could not caulk
Lord Acton once said all power corrupts but absolute power corrupts
When politicians take voting blocks for granted accountability sucks
Chicago has been ruled by Democratic mayors for 91 years
As to wrath of the voters for their failures they are without fear
Safe in their office there is little incentive to perform
Without accountability failure in terms of schools and safety is the norm
Emanuel is the product of big cities ruled by Blues
Secure in the belief always to be reelected no matter what they do or fail to do
The candidates vying for Emanuel’s job
Must advance a plan to curb the thugs who murder, maim or rob
Ere jobs will not come into the inner city
For employers. safety has to be the driving key
