    Thinking to himself… interesting Jhelom manifesto. Maybe he is the right candidate for Jhelom. He does have one of the key character traits for being a truly successful politician. What was that quote again… as yes… “I'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life”. He may do well with the representing Jhelom. But with all politicians, there is always one thing to disagree on… ponders way to burn down the Performing Arts Centre and get away with it… wonders if his childhood fears caused him to write these songs… bah… where’s that bottle of mead…

    Salinger’s Jhelom Strut

    Oooh, Oooh, Oooh, Oooh,
    Hotshot citizens sittin' on a fence
    They got enough gold to pay the agreement
    I'm not broke but I don't care
    I strut right by with my manifesto in the air

    Jhelom Governor strut, I'm a politcal cat,
    A terrific liar, hey man, thats where its at
    Get a e-bolt thrown at me from a mean old man
    Get a true statement from me if you can

    Yeah don't cross my path

    I don't bother wanting new things around
    I slink down in the Jhelom pits looking for a fight
    I’m all fed up on a hot summer night
    Singin' the lies while the other towns cry,
    "Wild Jhelom Governor, you're a real guy."

    I wish they could understand politics is wild,
    but I got Jhelom Governor class and I got my style.

    Hey RueTor,

    I like your "Strut", but as you use Stratics with your very dark background - you might want to consider the difficulty those of us (there are quite a few of us) who have a light background have reading your posts.

    Here's what I see:
