Today is election day ….and I forgot to run for Mayor. Which is okay, because the GL mayor seat isn't part of this election cycle. I think its 2010. Whatever. I'm starting my campaign today because ….
I did my morning google on how Greenleaf got its name and found the following pathetic fact:
The community was named for John Greenleaf Whittier, Quaker poet.
I'm really pretty strongly opposed to poets in general, for the most part, but I do love oatmeal. I think its time to erase this violently bad rhyming history from the city annals:
- O Brother Man, fold to thy heart thy brother:
- Where pity dwells, the peace of God is there;
- To worship rightly is to love each other,
- Each smile a hymn, each kindly word a prayer.
And replace it with my own better verse that celebrates more the breakfast cereal side of things:
Boil for Three Minutes, Stir and Let Stand,
by Mayor Elect KS Hipke
Yo, piece-packin' peace lovin' quick-cookin' mo fo's –
Time to get your rural ass down to the votin' po's
You can keep your oats, your God and your Gun
I'm buildin me a liquor barn bigger than the Sun
