RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
An Unwanted Cafe
Another city of Phoenix function for something
seniors voted against.
A cafe ribbon cutting for their grand opening,
even though they've been open for three weeks.
No one is buying anything because it is too
expensive for seniors on limited incomes.
Vice Mayor, a do nothing politician, is going
to do a token speech that no one wants to hear.
Another person also speaking about some non-
committal perks regarding the cafe.
Altogether, a farcical ceremony that no one
wants to attend, but have been herded like
cattle to the boring opening of all time.
