Atlantic City

ghost town

From the Wall Street Journal:  “Cash-strapped Atlantic City will shut down all nonessential services starting April 8 unless it receives a financial bailout from New Jersey, the mayor said Monday.”

Atlantic City is the place to go for your vacation;

for peace and quiet, solitude, it is the right location.

No officious city clerks, no traffic tickets given;

no lifeguards on the fabled beach — no fire engines driven.

The place is so deserted and in isolation now

that you can hear a mobster drop (or shoot a sacred cow).

A cemetery has more action than the Boardwalk here,

while politicians treat the place like any buccaneer.
