He should be at all fun’rals.
Just like Reagan was.

Looking for cellphone.

Let the sun shine in.

Make money for town.

Deer roaming the streets.
Drivers should watch out for them.
They’re worse than cyclists.

Drivers just speed through.

Only helps the towns.

Public lands look bad.
City neglects all its lawns.
Mow them ev’ry week.

That makes things tricky.

Doesn’t help at all.

I’ll boycott Lawrence.
No need for sanctuary.

This vote disturbs me.
Illegals from all over.
Even worse than now.

The ones we have now just hide.
Like kids smoking weed.

Wasn’t even on the stage.
They’re all too Trump-like.


I like Hillary.
She’s a tremendous speaker.
Vote based on gender.

More problems in town.
Not just that rich neighborhood.

These are the problems.
