Mayor's lament

It’s not easy being mayor of this city.

It wasn’t always like this, fighting in the streets, property damage in the millions, the entire world knowing who you are and what city you’re mayor of. Oh sure, the entire world thinks this would be the best city in the world to live in, but they weren’t saying that five years ago. Not until “they” showed up.

I cringe every time I say that. Of course everyone loves them, and I do too, at least publicly. But, if I have to be completely honest, I can’t stand them. They don’t know what I have to go through, seeing police reports, civil suits documents, no one seems to care about that part. They just see the flash and bang of the whole operation.

I tell ya, if they all of a sudden got up and left, I would be happier than a schoolboy at Christmas time. If I hear one more report of a building needing severe repair because of them, I may need to call in the military to get them out of here.

That’s right, you heard me, I want these “superheroes” out of my city.
