Why West Salem - Poem by Arthur Knackmus

Why is West Salem so important?
All it's doing is holding the world together.
To God every thing unimportant needn't be there.

People passes through this town with a frown.
Or laughing as being tickled with a feather.
Even though they are sitting in a car on leather.

Here every body does really like the weather.
Except during winter, spring, summer or fall.
Meaning not at all.

There isn't a thing here at all.
Not even the first shopping mall.

West Salem is a farming community.
People here only invest in annuity's
This community is stricken with poverty.
The only place to work is the one factory.

Money is tight here.
We can't even buy beer.
Nor shoes, shirts or pants to wear.
There is absolutely nothing here.
Not even a hog or steer.
