…..South Dakota, a progressive city,
near the James River and sitting pretty,
among the crops that grow year by year,
kids grinning from ear to ear.
My stay has been interrupted by some smell,
came in on the east wind, no one could tell…
..where it came from this terrible stench,
then we learned it was the Red Sox bench.
But that won't stop me from making my rounds,
further up north where the earth knows no bounds;
I'll continue my trip and my short visits too,
and I'll be writing them all down for you.
US 281 North
Note: The watercolor is "South Dakota Sunflowers", originally
it was call "North Dakota" in error; it's one I did last year from
a photo someone took while on a motorcycle trip.
