NIMBYs acting up

Grant my variance
Or I will take my business
Move it to Texas

Of busy volunteers

planning board work session
at end of the agenda
as they rush to leave.

Revolving Loan Funds

We contract out much
But do all the accounting
Thank god for spreadsheets

stop building freeways
take concrete, build some sidewalks
kill evil sprawl now, fool


why new stadium?
it will be imploded soon
fund the schools instead


main street has gone away
strip mall and wal-mart killed it
local merchants cry


mass transit? who cares?
we can build yet more freeways
bus, light rail must die!

they bring in the poor
the car culture must survive
save my land values!

My 4 offerings. (last 2 are a single poem) All that higher lernin' must be havin' its affect.
