Stacked Deck

Editor’s note: The following song lyrics were written by a reader to protest Santa Clarita’s Manufactured Home Rental Adjustment Panel procedures.

City Council special panel
supposed to be so- fair.
Two from one side, two from the other,
tiebreaking arbiter there.
Isn’t he supposed to be impartial?
How come he votes the same each time?

How can they win with a STACKED DECK?
All odds against them, what the heck?
How can they win with a STACKED DECK?
Who dealt these cards-?

Brand new member for the renters
has not said word one- yet.
Language barrier? Not comprehending?
Concept of “Second” can’t get?
Isn’t she supposed to see from our- side?
How come she votes for the other guys?

Haven’t you heard about the Golden Rule?
“Who’s got the gold gets to make all the rules-.”

I was almost thrown out asking questions.
Did she not under-stand?
Did not matter to all the lawyers.
No cares that she’s our one chance.
Isn’t this supposed to be done fair-ly?
Finally, she proudly proclaims, “I Third!”

Next meeting, July 21, she repeated that performance,
including “I Third!”
