As fourty five threatens

As fourty five threatens

As Trump threatens to send federal agents to Philly, Kenney…

Philly voice article

Swarthmore is waiting for at least

one of the Federales

to take up residence

on Park Avenue

Borough Hall will let him or her in

to use their bathroom

but a mask will be required

and there will be time limits

2) Local Restaurants are still vying

to see who might be

the first to refuse service

the first to refuse

though this is early bravado

things will change

And at least one enterprising place

will offer the Federal Police Burger

it will be Pork and Peppers

3) Swarthmore College has plenty of empty rooms

surely the Federale can reside there

it would safen the Campus

or would it lead to protests

of words and violence

of words and violence

4)  There will be a virtual Zoom Forum

Federales;  Yes or No

Who do we want

Who do we need

Consensus will not be built

with some Swarthmoreans swearing to never…!

5)  When the Swarthmorean eventually has an article

“Federal Troops Building to be built on Yale or Park”

the conversation will be

how it will impact the Business structure

and taxes

objections having fled to the very real pressures

of the

new realities
