Friday Quote: RiverSpeak Spokane Limerick competition

When it comes to litter pollution,
Spokane has a clever solution.
Now I don’t mean to gloat,
but a trash-eating goat?
Why the logic is downright Confucian

 - Devon Kelley

For the month of March, Spokane RiverSpeak, a local arts non-profit group sponsored by Community-Minded Enterprises ran a Spokane-flavored limerick challenge.  The winners were announced on St. Patrick's Day, and the above limerick won Grand Prize.  Check out the other winning entries HERE.

I love the centennial trail,
I wish they’d put it on sale
I would buy a mile
To skateboard in style
And after, we’d go drink some ale

 - Hilary Wittington
