At a recent Labour meeting
Many heads were troubled
Suspicion and mistrust is everywhere
A vote for a new Mayor was a must
Two names threw themselves into the ring
Councillor Currie of Valley
And ex-Mayor councillor Foden
Foden won 22 votes to 20
And with his big fumbling fingers
He lapped the role back up
Currie of Valley
A hard-working councillor
A true man of Labour
Who puts the public first
All this despite his recent personal challenges
Narrowly beaten to the post
By greedy Foden
The epitome of a ‘fat-cat’
Shame shame shame
Now back to the suspicion and mistrust
Apart from electing the Mayor
One issue dominated the clock
Who is the Phantom?
All down to suspicion
Instead of sorting their party out
They seek out those who
Highlight their problems
And too right they have reason to be suspicious
With Team Lakin severely plotting day and night
Lakin the leader
Beck the henchman
One dagger to Roger’s back
Whilst suffocating Team Ellis
Team Ellis planning to take the initiative
An all-out coup planned before next May
All the while Roger just like Nero
Up in his tower fiddling while Rome burns
Instead of sorting their own house out
They seek to silence the Phantom
For this reason the Phantom
Dedicates a verse to their behaviour
Which you all may know
We all are caught in the middle
of one long treacherous riddle.
Can I trust you?
Should you trust me too?
We shamble on through this hell
taking on more secrets to sell
’til there comes a day
when we sell our souls away.
We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those plotters seek him everywhere!
Is he in the sewer? Is he in the wall?
Where is that damn Phantom of the Town Hall!
He gives the plotters nothing but frustration
Popping in and out each week!
Spoiling every lovely execution
LA! What cheek!
The Phantom of the Town Hall
