09 Aug 2016 – Corporate Shacking Up

The devil you know and the devil you don’t
are shacked up together in new digs uptown.
You pray that they will – though you know that they won’t –
hold off on the rat killin’, sure to come down.

Long gone are the days when a glad shivaree
might make ’em think twice ‘fore they’re run out of state!
So write off the neighborhood, heaps of debris
are all we’ll have left when they padlock the gates!
