T’was the Night Before #Christmas
#ChicagoScanner 2021 version:

Twas the night before Christmas in the City of Big Shoulders
#Chicago was lively, people felt bolder
The vaxxes were jabbed in sore arms with much flair
In hopes that the COVID would not venture there The shoppers came back with snug fitting masks
Buying more stuff for their stay at home tasks
The year had been different but somehow the same
Stores were reopened and the people they came
But out in the streets the bullets still flew
And again Downtown saw lights flashing blue

#ChicagoScanner version:

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the hood
The streets were too quiet, which oft’ isn’t good.
The POD cams were aimed at known hot spots with care,
Looking for crimes that would soon happen there. The bosses were slumped at the wheels of their cars,
From too many drinks at some local bars.
My partner in Kevlar and me in my blues,
Fired up the squad for our grim nightly cruise.
When over the radio our dispatcher said,
Suspicious man on a roof, all dressed up in red.
