In a fairy tale town called Olde Hanahan
There ruled a merry little band
They waved their wands and cast a spell
On the township folks so they could not smell.
“That’s gold in the bucket!”
Humpty Kevin Cox yelled.
And, with this declaration,
The crowd it soon swelled.
They all gathered ’round.
They pushed and they shoved
To glimpse at the treasure that
All people loved.
One wizened old crone, she stepped up to say
What the fools in the crowd were thinking that day.
“This glorious pile is a wondrous thing!
Come! Let us all dance and let us all sing!”
A wise man stepped up and he testified
That the merry band…well they had simply lied.
“This is not gold!” he spewed out his words
“It’s a big steaming pile of stinking wet turds.”
Off he was driven with sticks and with curses
Old hags they were swinging their large rock-filled
There’s much more to tell…but why waste my breath
On people whose common sense has long left.
Years they did pass
Yet none would admit…
The merry band and their bucket
Was chock full of shit.
Afterword: Note that this is a tongue-in-cheek screed. School construction is coming along good. I still worry about the traffic issue that will ensue at the intersection of Williams Lane and Foster Creek Road. Heaven forbid that the powers that be should decide to open up Williams Lane to thru traffic. That would make the traffic situation even worse because the folks living along Foster Creek Road will see it as a short-cut to North Rhett and a way of avoiding the rush hour congestion at Tanner Ford.
I don’t have anything against the council member or the mayor. I do think, however, that the school site selection process could have been smoother and less conflicted.
With all the clearing going on down Williams Lane, I have noticed a decline in the wildlife population. In the past, I counted as many as 20 wild turkeys running across our property…preening the grass for bugs and drinking from our pond. Don’t see that much anymore.
That being said, here is an old photoshop of my cat Buddy…
