XANADU vs. The ZONING BOARD

In Xanadu did Kublai Khan
a stately pleasure dome decree
The zoning board did nix his plan
It mattered not he’d conquered the land
to the local bureaucracy
Twice he applied, twice turned down
even when Kublai greased palms downtown
Still his plans for mighty walls and towers
Violated covenants he felt quite restrictive
His garden rejected in the very last hours,
Incense trees being plants invasive.
“What damn good is being the friggin’ Khan
Feared by his friends and foes alike
When everything I try to do, I Khan’t”?
So he called his generals, who heard his rant
Then said “We’re union now, and going on strike.”

*Apologies to S. T. Coleridge
