Poem: ‘Dan is my Man’
Cory English, wife of Coeur d'Alene City Council candidate Dan English, has penned a swell poem that takes in all candidates in the 2015 municipal election.
It’s the eve of elections/In Twenty-Fifteen,/Winners and Losers/Remain to be seen.
We won’t know for sure/‘Til Jim counts the votes/Who are the sheep/And who are the goats.
Dan Gookin alone/Is surest to win/Without an opponent/He’ll be a shoe-in.
Now Toby reports/“Ron’s soft on guns.”/But Edinger counters/“I’ve got me some.”
Adams is quick to claim/Party affiliation./For city elections?/An abomination!
English says balance/Is what we need most,/Thoughtful decisions/Or we’ll all be toast!
Urban Renewal/Is a topic that’s hot./Some say to keep it,/Others say not.
Bruce doesn’t seem/To have much to say./He did like the Recall/From our dark yesterday.
All of these choices,/And the one I like best/Is English for Council/Above all the rest.
Decisions, decisions,/It’s all up to you./But you gotta go VOTE,/And your neighbor, too.
Now I will close,/And surely you’ll see/Why Dan is my Man,/As plain as can be.
