Syracuse


Syracuse is

like the life of Riley

There’s no place like show biz

But stay away if you’re smiley

 

To love one another

Unlike someone’s brother

Is far from a means to an end

If you plan on seeking a friend

 

What happened to the past

Left so quickly and could not last

The history of a Mayor

Could not save this place with prayer

 

Scandal and high deceit

Fast forward on repeat

Status quo falls in its rankings

Joyous blacks and whites now tankings

 

Even the news give clues

Lack of diversity sings blues

The right questions meet denial

Not even a Bobcat can shine the vile

 

A job if you hobnob

Without a suit as good as slob

So much for the powers-that-be

They weren’t around to make the history

 

You may as well be thug

So don’t expect a hug

Even keep cash under a rug

But the heart of the matter stays

Dead as off-Broadway plays

Even Jimi would forget Purple Haze

 

Syracuse is

like the life of Riley

There’s no place like show biz

But stay away from here

 if you’re smiley
