B 4d I apologize
I must say I despise
the way you judge me
in this, my Ford moment

caught between the crosshairs
I’ll blow a kiss, act debonair
and hope you don’t think I’m gay
oops, sorry — just another Ford moment

I told you I said sorry
I don’t get the story
c’mon I’m just another drunk
having another Ford moment

so I smoke a little crack
you got no right to call me whack
if I don’t like it, I’ll get you back
hang on for just a Ford moment

I live in a castle
made of no hassle
can’t stop me now
I‘m Robbie Hustle
gonna flex some muscle
everyone stand back
sometimes I’m a maniac

Look I’ll give you a chance
I wasn’t in that place
I’ve no more to explain
say that again I’ll dance on your face

What can I say? I’m Canadian
I’m going to apologize again and again!

And I can assure you — each one of you
is doing right now what everyone has done at one point or another in their life and just like all of you I am also
having another Ford moment

<I am a citizen of Toronto—if you have followed my blog I’m sure you can guess I didn’t vote for Ford. I’m not allowed to talk about Ford in my household—that edict was passed long before the crack admissions. I could go on and on about the travesty of Ford as a Councillor and Mayor — but I’m not allowed to do that in my house and I think house rules extend to WordPress. Here’s the point — he cannot be believed; I only believe independently verified sources regards anything he says; amongst his many political travesties he has steadfastly voted against any motions that sought funding to deal (positively) with gangs/drugs addicts/guns/housing projects/etc. — he really is the caricature he appears to be. He has seized the city and plunged it into his psychodrama — true sign of a dysfunctional personality. And there is more to come. I hate to say it but the story is not done yet. There is still evidence before the courts that has yet to be revealed. It’s not a good time for those of us who love our city. In ten months we get to vote — if we go to court to toss him out of office it will take that long anyway. He is a demagogue and unfortunately people will vote for such. The larger question for all Torontonians remains — what kind of city do we want? Because our Mayor has to reflect our city — and it’s apparent we’re having a hard time finding someone to fill those shoes. Stay tuned — September 2014 we vote and this election is shaping up to be a good one!>

<Well folks, this one was written before Rob Ford, but I think it is even more appropriate considering the Mayor we in Toronto are currently subject to, and hence, herewith, hear ye, heart ye — the Mayor’s Song:>

Each day
another great wheel
raises me up until the lights shine
beneath me like stars reflected in Lake Ontario.
Lowers me into unimaginable depths
of misery and pity,
whose smoke and confusion
brings tears to my eyes.
Must I witness all that is good,
all that is wild and savage?
I continue to rise
and fall until I rise again,
as if I were master,
not slave. As if I
could control the passion,
the need to demonstrate
the best that never can be;
the truth about what lies beneath
the stable of the beast.
