Really longtime Congressman John Mica wants to Let You Pay next year to operate his Railroad he and former House of Representatives Democrat (disgraced and indicted) chum Corrine Brown of Jacksonville found federal startup funding for, and now we will be “one the hook” for operating expenses along with The State of Florida, called SunRail, which just a few days ago announced trial Saturday Service…when weekday service ends too early in the evening to get much in the way of nighttime action seekers using the subsidized three – soon if not already four county service with Orlando’s nightlife a dangled enticement. So here is the little ditty for Representative Mica, whose buddy’s Corrine Brown’s reapportionment district sent Mica back to Seminole County from his safer home along the coast, much like previous Republican pols Tom Feeney and Sandy Adams used to get the hell out of Sanford and poorer sections of Seminole County (often with coattails dragging along the less well off sections.
John Mica wants you to buy
First there was Tom Feeney
and then Sandy Adams
and so many more
not just from around here
who moved themselves or
helped draw the borders
to change from term-limits
to new elective offices
or to escape the other guys’
votes in the face of reapportionment.
And then there’s my new Congressman,
John Mica, swell-dressed, botox-smiled
or at least a reasonable faxscimile thereof,
who used to be my old CongressCritter
and now is again
who with the help of crook Corrine Brown
gave my district a big-ass two-car only
train running from sunrise to just about sunset
with a huge operating expense
nevermind the federal government subsidy
currently on the books’ so-slippery
pages – but not for much longer –
and his chairmanship of the
Transportation Sub Committee lays
the blame squarely on him for
superior lemon-selling and hog-washing
and he will be on the better and bigger things
before we get the “Oh, yes, the subsidy’s off
and here is the bill to run this railroad
whose two cars sometimes stick out past the
depots en route and block traffic and encourage
scofflaw drivers to risk the oncoming
or returning trains’ ramming abilities.
But whomever designed the train stations
to sit so but two cars only could load and
discharge passengers is only one wearing
dunce-cap capable in this sad tale.
No chapeau, however, for John Mica.
It is we, the voters who approved the
politicians who bought this “fast mover”
often sitting sidelined because some car
just couldn’t avoid the trackward creep
and got hit, who will wear not just the dunce cap
for this poke-ful pork,
but our very wallets which will wail
when we see the coming operating bill
for dick and jane.
Wonder if John Mica will mail us all
an neat engineer’s cap and a fake
cord attached to no whistle whatsoever
so we can say at least we could ring the bell
if there was a bell to ring and if the cord
actually was attached?
