‘Tis the season for loss of reason


To the Editor:

Tis the season

For loss of reason

and impending Doom.

Here on Circus Avenue

The noise of the crowd

Is greater than should be allowed.

Summer cop on the beat

Concedes defeat,

While tourists feeling jolly,

Blithely step into the street,

Not looking for a car.

Fortunately the drivers are.

(Looking, and expecting folly.)

Such pedestrianism is a bad habit to carry

To Beach Road, or home to the City,

Where an ice cream cone

Has no ability

To protect you from the Emergency Room.
