News in Pos­sum Poot

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

The cel­e­bra­tions have fi­nally wound down; only mi­nor cel­e­bra­tory gun­fire can be heard oc­ca­sion­ally. I as mayor of Pos­sum Poot deemed it nec­es­sary to travel to that bas­tion of poor, lost, lib­eral souls—i.e., Lit­tle Rock—to con­fer with the most righ­teous and holy of state se­na­tors—Brother Rapert—con­cern­ing his place­ment of the Ten Com­mand­ments and what fur­ther wis­dom he has gar­nered from the Book of Books (the Old Tes­ta­ment) re­gard­ing the guid­ance and de­liv­er­ance of we poor, lowly Arkansas denizens. Un­for­tu­nately, he was clois­tered in deep con­ver­sa­tion and prayer with Tom Cot­ton and not see­ing con­stituents.

I did no­tice, whilst driv­ing around, the unique­ness of Lit­tle Rock’s traf­fic sig­nals. It seems that they are not there to gov­ern the traf­fic as to sug­gest spe­cific stop­ping places and times, for no less than 40 cars ran through the in­ter­sec­tions while I stared at green lights. For­tu­nately, I was not in­volved in an ac­ci­dent or the Poot would have been out a may­oral/ po­lice cruiser.

Oh well, back to the holy city (vil­lage) of Pos­sum Poot. The chil­dren are learn­ing new words to “Je­sus Loves me,” and we hope to hear it soon. (“The Don­ald loves me, this I know, for he of­ten tells me so …”) STEVE GIB­SON
