Today’s Phil Hart Poem, Angelou Style

(Phenomenal Cabin -- Nic Casey channels Maya Angelou's Phenomenal Woman)

Little people wonder where my secret lies.

I’ve not paid for anything a normal person might

Public trees are for the taking

Don’t think I'm telling lies.

I say,

It's in the taxes unpaid

The trees of the land,

The logs of my home,

Cut down by my hand.

I'm an Athol

Phenomenally.

Phenomenal cabin,

That's mine.
