As Long As CHOP Exists Seattle Businesses Will Leave

There is truth to the slogan “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”
Likewise a job is a terrible thing to lose when safety from police is erased
When it comes to having a grip on reality, it’s gone with Mayor Jenny Durkan
Anyone not blind could see no “Summer of Love” but riots and danger lurkin’
Durkan and her City Council should heed well The Lord of the Flies
End police and you lose civilization constraints and people die
A billion dollar investment company in Seattle put its foot down and said “enough”
Smead Capital said our leaving Seattle will be to the creation of CHAS or CHOPS our rebuff
Seattle police stripped of all crowd control weapons save batons and guns
With City Council demanding defunding another riot, police helpless when it has begun
The business community in Seattle is not safe and to Phoenix we are packing our bags
Do not be surprised Seattle Mayor and City Council jobs lost not replaced and growth lag
As long as CHOP exists and police are stripped of funds and equipment to fight violent crime
The number of businesses with their jobs leaving is going be an increasing line
