Last night the wings of City Hall were jammed
with many a fluffy handlebar mustache;
The wearers weren't part of some klezmer band,
or VIPs at a Harley-Davidson bash.
Turns out the mustachioed dudes were firemen
incensed about their pension benefits —
specifically, a councilor's plan to tweak 'em,
and allegedly spoil their plans for retirement.
As union president Libby told this reporter
that councilor Andy Montroll is to blame,
an observer noted that a firetruck
was idling outside in a fire lane.
Was Libby aware, I asked, of the violation?
Oh, sure, he said, but cops won't write a citation.
