May Golden Shovel #22

So it's been a while since I wrote a golden shovel poem, but I've been saving source headlines to work on. Even though it's now June 7, here's one for May 22.

source: Rural Oregon Votes to Quit Its Own State and Secede to Idaho

They don’t want to start a war, the rural

Citizens of Oregon.

They only want to not be overruled by the votes

Of city citizens, to

Escape values that rural citizens dislike. Country folk quit

Empathy, its

Apparent weakness intolerable for people who carry their own

Guns wherever they go. They state

Their need for more compatible associates and

Demand to secede.

City folk escort them to the border, to

Their own private Idaho.
