Moderation, to eliminate juvenile crap

This repeats what I've posted on the string: http://thepassing-parade.com/archives/2005/12/pig_plant_thing.html

General alert here: Someone is now playing games with email addresses, using the addresses of people who they clearly aren't.

So, I'm going to turn on moderation, which means posts will be held 'til I've had a chance to look at them. Sorry about the inconvenience but it'll stop the juvenile crap enough for me to enjoy the holiday. I'll be checking periodically to post legit stuff.

Once again, Merry Christmas.

A Moline Christmas Carol

A good 2005 to close for the Chair of Moline Better City Gov--
How he and his cronies justify new high taxes to their beloved?--

Christmas holiday bah humbug says he--
April surprise I gave to thee--
That is gift enough to those yeah worship yea old Deere--

Ah citizens of Moline where art thou be absent my wisdom say doth--
With more boring pols yeah hold seats made of similar cloth--

Have no tomorrow to worry just build build build--
Nay a concern of money just invoice the guild--
New shiny Library, Parking Ramp, High Police Command erect--

Silent Mayor stands by as new taxes enact--
Like a lost sheep with no shepherd signs what?s contract--
Slumbers Hon Chairman - then awakened in dismay--
Who dare enter my chambers to disturb me today?--

Ghost of past Holiday have no fear--
Ghost of present Holiday come ever near--
Ghost of future Holiday stay nigh--

And so Past Holiday sigh thy youth all away--
Ne?er enjoyed yet broken hearted those days--
Squandered youth lost on love come bitter--
Harden this old man?s heart thee no longer a twitter--

And now Present Holiday bah humbug err no spirit cares--
Sugarplum sweetness gone yeah thy soul bares--
Bitter spite onto thee all feel my power and treachery--
Tax the poor; make them work those in power not share wretchery--

And yeah Future Holiday no concern, I to go ? yet live for today--
The families of the YPN Generation to tax their payday--
Young leaders under 40 soon to fear--
Older wiser bill payers now learning in new years--

Moline Holidays dead like my heart no more thrill; no flutter--
But where is Pat O?Brien they often mutter?--
Ahh replaced by another yet a Moline taxpayer still--
O?Brien stays watching and waiting and will??--
Oh future conclude need we a great leader to fill--
And to bring back our Moline to common sense up and down each hill--
