Tuxedo had a vision because neglect just doesn't work
He'd been there, so he knew the score, and Stan is not a shirk.
Not actually being human could be easily overcome
In Alaska, Talkeetna's mayor had shown us how it's done.
The outlook was still hopeful for Tuxedo Stan that day
He wasn't on the ballot, but he could win the write-in way.
There were other fine contenders for the mayor of HRM
But animal rights defenders weren't at the polls to vote for them
Stan could disclose campaign donors, if it had come to that
But red herrings can't distract him, even though he is a cat.
More visible than Steve Mackie, less combative than Tom,
Stan has Robert's charm with Aaron's drive and Savage's aplomb
Fred Connors' love for chickens and two ducks was hard to beat
But Stan would help the animals who are living on the street.
A TV host, A. Cooper, endorsed Stan's efforts on his show
And Facebook friends were shouting to the whole world, "Go Stan, Go!"
But HRM is not Alaska. Proof of birth was poor Stan's bane
So if you put him on your ballot, you just cast your vote in vain.
Oh somewhere in this favoured land, the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Catville- Tuxedo's name was stricken out.
