Summer Festivals in Low-income Towns – Sonnet #5


Summer Festivals in low-income towns
Popcorn, ice cream and cover bands abound
Smiles, folding chairs and honest hard workers
Bikers, families, and teenaged wanderers
Dart games and local chamber of commerce
Fringe blankets, folding chairs ice-stocked coolers
Inflatable trampolines, socks bare feet
Grouped around the beer tent where old chums meet
People relaxing breathing summer air
Break from drudgery at the local fair
Maybe yellow dandelions poke through grass
Maybe name brand vendors all took a pass
Unspoiled revelers enjoy the day
Summer magic settles while children play
