Because I’m committed to giving Bend Business Roundup readers a well-rounded cultural experience (and, maybe, a(nother) good reason to unsubscribe), this week’s BBR is entirely in limerick. We’ll get back to prose next week.
Portland lacks affordable housing supply
City leaders didn’t need to ask why
It’s because you see
They need a new fee
Lest city coffers run dry
Some say limit the automobile
They claim Les Schwab is hardly ideal
For a place without mar
From truck or car
Feign the big street in front isn’t real
There once was a state with one-party rule
Whose view of open government was cool
Trust us, they said
There’s reform ahead
If you believed that you might be a fool
You’ve heard of footballers called Beavers?
Cheered on by beleaguered believers
They lost to Hawaii
But beat Cal Poly
Oregon loves its underachievers!
