A Poem About a B.I.D.

Roses are red and violets are blue.
You are a liar and that I know is true.
The BID is a tool you use to make Chinatown a fool.
With the BID you want to effectively rule the fool.
You want to pull the wool over Chinatown’s eyes.
So that it will be a fool to enrich and better YOUR lives.
Flushing is crying that they have been made a fool,
"flushing" their hard earn dollars down the pool.
Flushing is crying that they are paying more taxes,
Suffering BID lashes.
YOU use your force and voice to prey on “d, e, and f”.
YOU are about fooling the deaf.
d.. 35 percent of property owners pay just $200 per year –
e.. 74 percent of property owners pay less than $1,000 per year.
f.. Only a handful of property owners pay the maximum dues of $5,000 per year.
And as for CLEAN, who can define CLEAN?
Are you CLEAN?
As there are things and people that are clean on the outside, but are really dirty and filthy on the inside.
Roses are red and Violets are blue,
Lets be true and agree that the BID will put Chinatown in the BLUES. 
We Don’t need the BID.
