The Dirt Saga

For Years we’ve had a pile of dirt,
It’s been the talk of the town.
It has everyone on alert.
All they do is move it around.

It seems to have come to a standoff,
With everyone taking a side.
Has something to do with Steve Randolph.
All opinions seem to collide.

Everybody is a meetin’
About this big ole mound.
Their eyes and ears are bleedin’
But no solution can be found.

Let’s just call the dirt abandoned
And move it away ourselves.
At least we got a plan done –
Hurray, Hurray and ring the bells!

After years of distraction
And time flushed down the drain,
Let’s make it a tourist attraction
So we can all be happy again.
