Develop the Adirondacks to Stop Crime

If you listen to some “experts”, the burnt lumberjack might not have happened if the Adirondack Club and Resort “lawn care and maintenance jobs” were available. You mean those kids could have been mowing a lawn (4am, March) instead of torching the lumberjack?

Chopping some Adirondack Wood

January 26th, 2007 · No Comments · Miscellania

I’m not a huge fan of “literature”, but I do appreciate some good spoken word…here’s an excerpt:

I fall asleep in a weathered Adirondack
to awake and there find a leaf
has fallen into my lap.
Yes, on this spinning clod of earth,
once again, decay has found me.
Oh, not that I’ve been
running from decadence mind you.
Not that I’m running towards it either.
I know my place in the scheme of
all things entropy.

So you grab your axe and
proceed to whack at your wood.
A hard job, but
somebody’s got to do it.
Couple of hours later,
it’s finally down and
with a mighty shout of “Timber!”
it’s safe to be seen in public again.

Note: Not as good as a “Melious”, but entertaining nonetheless.
