The District is hard up for Gs
And fixing that won’t be a breeze
That time you drove fast?
The bus that you passed?
Get ready to pay more in fees

The budget, so often long-winded
And partly it’s thanks to what Jim did
At first, it hurt tenants
But F. paid his penance:
The draft was quite quickly rescinded

Tuition growth soon will be capped
To help those financially strapped
Those bastions of snobbery
Still highway robbery?
Or must they also adapt?

A shooting, the worst here in years
Brought sadness, renewing old fears
The presser delayed
‘Cause Fenty vacay-ed
Jamaica? Or where? We’re all ears
