JAMES TRAFICANT

Mafia ally, or crime ring’s worst foe?
Headed for heaven, or places below?
Darling of Youngstown, this one they revere:
Congressman, sheriff, toupee’d racketeer.
Once ran for office from prison, no less —
Running again now, says CBS press.
Monster, or hero? Crook, or mere slander?
Rise back to Congress? Or sink in *Meander?

Marie Elena

*Mahoning Valley’s Meander Reservoir is legendary for the number of dead bodies the Mafia has dumped in its waters.
