Headline Poem 10/23/14 -- New Neighbors, Welcome Home

New Neighbors, Welcome Home 

Let's all settle down 
in a somewhere nowhere town 
to the North or right 
of here. 
Let's tell all the ghosts who've lived there before that it's our turn. 
Let's explain as nicely as we can 
that dirt's not cheap and either are words. 
You pay to use both,
whether you whisper or run. 
So no promises 
no guarantees... 
Put your shovel in the ground and don't ask for any favors.
