“Do We Need Outside Help”

Emporia News needs your help...

Do you read Emporia News every day? Have you ever considered supporting this community based news service with a donation? You may also make a recurring donation with a subscription.

Emporia News needs your help because it is time to replace a laptop and a camera, so that I may continue to bring you a quality site. It troubles me to ask for donations, but without support, Emporia News may be forced to shut down. Thank You.

For more information, please call Amanda at (434)594-7924

I found a phone number the other day
but I didn’t know whose it was
well I thought ig over for a minute or two
then I gave it one long buzz.
 
Now I know it rang once or twice
then a knock came to my door
they said they’re from problem solvers
yet had never been here before.
 
They said if you have a problem
first you have got to explain
then they will call people in the know
and they even work in the rain.
 
Well the Council all have telephones
and indeed it is worth a try
why not ask them to call problem solvers
before another year goes by.
 
Well we must not have the skilled labors
that problem solvers so rely
yes or why can they not fix a pothole
somewhere before the third try.
 
The spring is almost upon us
and summer just around the bend
yet our buildings and streets are still messed up
what is the message we send.
 
Now the boarded up buildings with broken windows
has for long been a dreadful sight
if they can’t find a law of who fixes
find the owner before he takes flight.
 
Well thank you tourists for once more stopping here
at least to spend the night
if and when Council calls problem solvers
maybe next year we’ll be rid of the blight.
