Still Another Poem about Jack Franks

McHenry County Blog seems to have unlocked poetic talent among readers.

Here is another poem about McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks, this time from “OldMaBaker”:

Please accept my own new, little poem, and my deep apologies to Joyce Kilmer



Dear Jack,

Jack Franks at the Marengo Settlers Days Parade.

I think that I shall never see
An Official as scurrilous or base as thee!

A bully whose tax-hungry mouth is prest
Against every taxpayer’s drying-up breast;

A vain despot who looks upon us slaves all day,
To scheme new ways to make us pay;

A usurper that may in CoW council wear
A nest of spitting vipers in his hair;

Upon your soiled desk many a plea for our tax mercy has lain;
Only to be laughed at and thrown out in the rain.

Yes, you Franks, with your Igor-minion, craven-Craver,
Please quit, and do us all a favor!

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only woke voters can set us free

  1. Yeah he reads this blog faithfully and got tired of being called ‘Round Mound’, Elvis, ‘Chins O’Many’ ‘Boss Hogg’, and several others…

    Let’s not forget the most fitting nickname he’s earned:

    This was a good poem.

    Very good.

    Kudos to the poet.

    Yes we were all warned but he spent $400K on a race for an $80K/yr job.

    That alone is vert telling.

  2. “Looks like he’s lost a lot of weight.” Sunshine blogger, does this means Jack D. Franks is getting Skinnier or Skinner? Please clarify. It would be the utmost embarrassment for you. No worries though, I can tell from the republikkklan fundraiser pictures, your belly keeps getting wider and wider…Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, meeeeeoooooowwwwwwwwwwww…
