"... as about 220 protesters camped in their tightly packed tents, most of them asleep, powerful klieg lights on the trucks snapped on with a�'Whoosh!' Now, it was as bright as day, even though it was 1 a.m."-- New York Times, 11/17/2011�The kliegs were shining on the park,
Shining with all their might:
They did their very best to make
The pavement smooth and bright --
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.�The occupiers glared at this
Because they thought the cops
Had got no business being there
After the day was done --
'It's very rude of them,' they said,
'To come and spoil our fun.'�The Mayor and the Po-lice Chief
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
A protest on "their" land:
`If this were only cleared away,'
They said, `it would be grand!'�`If seven�units with seven�tanks
Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose,' the Mayor said,
`That they could get it clear?'
`I doubt it,' said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.
