of the riverbed
with a box
and unneeded offices
why is the entrance to the new megamall
separated from the street or elevated at all
when the sidewalk two blocks down
is full of SEPTA transfers?
and this is not rhetorical
why are your zoning meetings open to all
when you just cut us all off from the good stuff
like 100 other towns and 1000 other cities?
cash cash cash cash cash cash give it up
of your trucker friends
as they try to bring
for your dumb roads
we will repurpose them
how can you call this a development
when the only thing that's going up is my rent
and a pile of rebar slabs to stack your money?
and anyway, why is the entrance to the grocery store
in the parking garage on the highest floor?
I know I asked you once and I'll keep asking
until you admit it was a cash grab

I love Lovecraft in Brooklyn, and this version captures the energy of the Mountain Goats in concert as well as any recording I've heard. My absolute favorite, but the live version of See America Right is a close second. Bangers, the both of 'em. theoysterking
