aroundtownpoem #5

hey here’s an idea to capture
more tourist bucks
isn’t it generally known
the simpsons’ springfield is
our own springfield lots of clues
why not balance the figures
on the old state capitol mall
by putting on the other end
a modern family group
electronically rigged
so that visitors walking past
will hear doh and don’t have a cow
man wow it’ll slay ’em
better even than salem mass
where crowds go see
the samantha statue
riding a broomstick and
twitching her nose
