Strong Foot

 

 

Lori Lightfoot for being voted Chicago Mayor

 

 

Even if opponents are strong

And assert themselves as right

And always show others as wrong,

They can’t achieve victory outright

 

A brave African -American woman, gay

Putting all speculations at bay

Proved that nothing is above sincerity

And hard work to uplift humanity

 

Breaking all traditions at one go,

She’s now the Mayor of Chicago

Reflecting the power of the people

Who helped her climb the political steeple

 

With determination, her strong foot

Will stand up to any political hoot

And respond sternly to the threats

From racist supremacists and their pets
