Rhymin' Hyman

December 05, 1991|By Kelton Carl Ostrander

Give us a comptroller like Hyman

who pulled the purse strings tight

Guardian of constituents' tax monies,

morning, noon and night

Vetoed promiscuous spending and

not afraid to say, "Nay!"

Watchdog over the general funds

anticipating a rainy day

Now, the city's coffers are empty

and who is at fault?

We know it's not Hymie Pressman

for he always secured the vault
