Southwest of Nye County
A man came to avoid the crowd
And elude a public bounty.
There stood a shambled dairy.
But where he built his lair,
Was a run down cemetery
Where the man campaigned for mayor.
"For though your prospects came to harm
I swear I've heard your pleas
I'll bear arms against the worm
And educate the fleas.
"Although your time might have passed
And the reward been won for most
There's no excuse for earthly taxes
Levied on a ghost.
"Though Carson City threatens woe
Against our community,
When I'm mayor of Palmetto
We'll choose our destiny."
He campaigned long and promised bold,
But there's no mayor in that town.
For though the dead endorsed him cold,
The unions turned him down.
HUSTINGS, n. pl. The stump of a perfectly good hanging tree.
More to the point, the happiest of birthdays to DDDragon! I'll have a kit kat or something in your honor.
