The economic Bird of Paradise;
That giant Construction Crane,
Seeks tragi-comic sacrifice
With compliant taxpayer drain.
Skeffington wants a deal sunny,
An investor’s modest desire.
By using other people’s money,
A financial homerun is sure-fire!
Best yet from our “Partner” to be:
Pay no taxes and get the land free!
And those drains; public funded the price.
Should public funds pay for them twice?
The best government money can buy;
Withhold campaign funds as leverage.
The public’s not up for your beverage.
The boon of your plan’s a charade!
Prove us wrong; drink your own Kool-Aid!
Here’s Plan “B” for you to deploy,
In case one has to save face.
Buy the land surrounding McCoy,
And “Kraft” your own “PAWSOX PLACE.”
