no secrets in small towns

a neighborhood of small towns 


Along the roads connecting towns

Lie smallish burbs and hamlets

To travel through is trafficless

Connecting all inhabitants


Communities where occupations public

passing faster still than quiet roads

Clothesline talk and scuttlebutt

Run swiftly cross fence and phone


When the call came that afternoon

such shameful scandal described

grabbing keys and coat, fleeing said small town

to the city before they arrived


puzzeled to find the story leaked, city asked, "How is it that anyone could know?"

small town replied, "In the middle of town, in middle of day, please everybody knows."
