A letter to Mr. Bush from Cleveland:
There's a need, in your deed, you ignore
By focusing just on a "score;"
And any excuse
That permits such abuse,
Mr. Bush, like our children, is poor.
Your "compassion" is simply unkind.
For you can't feed a child's hungry mind
By leaving unfed
His body instead.
Now that's when a child's left behind!
Cleveland rates as big city with highest poverty rate

NB: Mr. Bush made no mention of these census statistics on his visit to Ohio the very next day.
