Maiden Lane

The opening of the right now
under-utilized park there
was overrun with folk pretending
they were voting PAPPAS,
until the hotdogs ran out.
Suddenly,
there were questions about Dean’s
voting record:
How can you council
downtown, Deaner,
if ya can’t vote for us
(like we voted for you)
in council
because ya own
the local
billiard concern?
and such.

They were really letting him have it
until a volunteer
returned triumphant to the park
classic 12 + 8 pack combo
dogs and buns
in hand,
so I voted for myself
to take two hotdogs,
which is unfair to those behind me
but is actually fine
because I am not at all
in the hot dog business.
