Shire Slam Poetry - May 25th in Moruya

Editor: There is little we enjoy more at the Beagle than a riproaring Shire Slam poem. Here is one off the cuff to get you started in the comments below: Poetry slam is here again what's this year's topic? "Council's Pleasure ... and Pain" My friends, let me tell you of a calamity near bought about by the decision of a town engineer who many years ago said "You'd be such a fool to ever replace a cracked swimming pool with one the same length when we all know for sure that if they want fifty metres then they can lap more" "They can swim twice the distance and make twice the turns meander between 'teabags' and those there to learn they can dodge all the ladies with their noodles and floats they can lap through the tourists with their holiday bloats and when they are done they can feel rest assured that the $eight fifty they paid was great value - for sure" The new pool might be squashy with so many bods still the Mayor is "excited" which remains quite at odds with the hundreds now massing who call the plan lame and challenge the Council they've now declared quite inane Yes, the people will rise that is for sure and the Council might sprout "They simply want more" but the truth of the matter is incredibly clear Those who agree with the Mayor won't be elected ... next year ning tong diddle eye po.

NOTE: Comments were TRIALED - in the end it failed as humans will be humans and it turned into a pile of merde; only contributed to by just a handful who did little to add to the conversation of the issue at hand. Anyone who would like to contribute an opinion are encouraged to send in a Letter to the Editor where it might be considered for publication
