I hoped there would be fireworks this summer,
Sonic booms of arguing, effusing of opinion,
Sparkly displays of emotion,
But Taylorville has settled into a nothing of a summer.
I’ve been covering the dog park,
Mutt news as I like to call it,
First Fridays, and a rumor that a Banksy copycat
Is hitting the mushroom houses.
At least there is intrigue there.
