City, Oh, My City
Last night at writing group we did a quick, 10-minute write called, "City, Oh, My City" - which I translated to "County, Oh, My County". Because Dusty Rose does not live in the city. I'm putting it here as a reminder to myself to clean it up and flesh it out a little bit. Again, this was a quick one.
CHESTER COUNTY, OH, MY CHESTER COUNTY
Home of Eddie Arnold, Walking Tall and Dusty Rose,
Dixie Youth, an Annual BBQ Festival, and Freed-Hardeman University
Home of Bells Drive-In, voted best burger in Tennessee,
and the drive-thru nativity at First Baptist
Where Footloose, the movie, could have been filmed,
yet the dances go on.
Where elections were based on whiskey
Where all the trucks have gun racks
and the cars have big tires
Where noodling is illegal
and NASCAR stands tall
Where the funeral home has an info line
and the county paper tells all.
