Downtown News Editor Jon Regardie pens a poem to the traveling Mayor
in the theme of Dr, Seuss.
It's time for you to fly.
You're off to Great Places!
Cuz you're the mayor, that's why!
You have friends in high places.
You have funds that need raising.
You have voters to please.
You have trips that need taking.
You'll bring dozens of pals, some will pay their own way.
You can earn a kajillion frequent flier miles today.
You'll see cities and nations. You will choose them with care.
You'll travel by car and by train, but mostly by air.
You'll invite reporters, even if they're like leeches.
Because reporters will report on your fascinating speeches.
The places you'll go!
You voyaged to Israel where you pressed lots of flesh.
Spent a cool quarter-million, but it's for L.A.'s best!
And if someone protests, pretend you don't care.
You're not the mayor of some small town in the desert somewhere.
