Fox Lake....

...Illinois, what a find this village is, a vacation spot,
located in a 'chain of lakes', noted for what it's not;
in the 1920's the old Mineola Hotel had a frequent guest,
someone who'd be looked upon by us, as a kind of pest.

The summer location of gangster Al Capone,
and you can bet he didn't stay alone,
sure there were the standard guns then,
what a learning experience this visit has been.
