My NYC poetweet: an extension

Author's note: In the spirit of poetry and the annual NYC Poetweet contest, I came up with my own poetweet except it maximizes the 140 character limit.

Noise complaints, car beeps
New York City never sleeps
Must LOOK for new ways
For our streets have seen better days
Rats everywhere taking control
Watch out for that growing sinkhole!
Paint peels from subway walls
311 receives thousands of calls
Dollar extra for a new Metrocard
Fare hikes hit the pocket hard
Good luck in finding a cabbie
A drive to outer boroughs is costly
Broken sidewalk, historic cobble stone
Does anyone still use the payphone?
 Fastrack schedules, bus delays
We need more clean subways
Now that this poem is complete
            Too bad it won’t win the poetweet
