OPINION / LETTER TO THE EDITOR

‘A Yankee Doodle Testimony’: Letter to the Editor by Frances Pulle

(TO THE TUNE OF YANKEE DOODLE: State Song of Connecticut)

Yankee Doodle rides to town
astride an aging pony …
He writes: “I used to take the choo choo
train, Sen-a-tor TONI.”

“USED TO.” Notice the past tense
’cause he’s no longer able
to pay the fares that he compares
to doo doo in a stable. 😝

He continues: “Bess and me plow forth
on trails steep, so so stoney …
WE’RE BEING MILKED BY METRO NORTH!!! 😱
Don’t call my beef ‘baloney’!! 😩

Frankly, Governor, GIVE A DAMN…
(He loosely quotes Clark Gable) 💝
Dispense with all the flim ‘n’ flam …
TAKE FARE HIKE OFF THE TABLE!

Just heard about the new bar cars …
NEARLY POPPED MY $@&%#* CORK!
How can I afford a Manhattan … huh? 😳
If I can’t make it to New York? 🗽

Should Bessie kick the bucket I
will purchase a zamboni …😀
Yours truly, the Yankee Doodle.”
(So ends his testimony)
