Barefoot In the Parking
I imagine about now,
The Chief O' Police
The Right Honourable etc etc & so forth Bratton
is wishin' he'd never picked up the call from Mikey D.
will no doubt win the coveted "Who Me? Award;
for managing to take California Taxpayers' money for his salary,
yet somehow not bothering to share his Grand Pooh-Bah of Parking expertise
nor his vast knowledge of enforceable sanctions against institutions,
with the one true offender in this scenario;
Newcomer Alex Faye comes closest to delivering.
But alas, he is but a promising actor
who has now attached his star
to a wagon...
and been left holding the bag
to cover for the real troublemaker of this
disastrous play without a play.
And what about M.C. Mikey D?
In crafting his curious performance of a pompous yet bumbling Iago,
Mr. Dukakis is revealed as having as much to do with "the people" and their processes
as Man of La Mancha has to do with the literature of Cervantes.
