cleveland
a clever disguise Not a word?

Aw, well Cleveland is the wonderful, terrible land that I love. Made famous when on 30_Rock Alec_Baldwin said, "Sure, we'd all love to flee to the Cleve." Really, that was our big moment.

Oh, and the Rock Hall is pretty sweet.

first the steel mills lumber out of town
and then lebron kicks you in the teeth
on national tv

irrational pride
straight work ethic
(maybe she was the one that gave me
my unwavering faith in the underdog)

my moms family has lived in the same house
for sixty years (!)
roots run deep
we drove up denison to the funeral
and my heart crumpled a little bit more
at how ramshackle the neighborhood has become

oh_honey
being the middle notch
on the rust_belt has not been kind

unhinged and my favorite cleveland reference was on the drew carey show; the bosses wife was bitching about being stuck in cleveland instead of nyc or la and drew turns to a coworker and says something like:

'we should send her to youngstown . then cleveland wouldn't seem so bad'

;-)

(and i was probably one of few to understand the hilarious truth of that one liner. besides maybe you of course)

unhinged 'i always thought of cleveland as a shithole' says my brothers roommate and then 'ive only met like four good people in my whole life and your brother is one of them'

how do you think he got that way? where we grew up has something to do with it. come_on_dude don't dis our home

the tombstones are piling up
in the cemetery
the snow piles up
on the tree lawns
the cars pile up
in the drive ways
