Opposing the Swarthmore Condo, chapter 627

Continuing to oppose the five floor 50 condo proposed for Swarthmore (pop 5,000)

Still fighting

the good fight

anti-condo, anti-condo, anti-condo

if I wanted to live in Philly

we would have moved there”

Swarthmore is a bloody little borough

we don’t want or need

our own five floor Condo

nor do we need

our own new Pro Football team

the fighting Quakers

oh wait

that’s been used

  1. Nor so we need

our own Symphony Orchestra

our own Opera Company

our own-

we do have some theatres

thank you very much

we have our own community center

coffee shop

beer garden

wine bistro

and, of course,

our own dunkin donuts

doesn’t everyone

  1. Swarthmore needs to talk

about our future

who we are

what we want

who we want

to become

and what we don’t
