Yea or nay?

Still haven’t heard a yea or nay about the Rockford Fringe Festival. Take your time, elected officials. Take your time.

third ward alderman
leaves me hanging like a chad
please vote yea or nay

I wrote a that senryu because hyperlocal poetry always motivates people to work faster.

Normally I wouldn’t explain the joke, but my alderman’s first name is Chad.

Speaking of “yea,” I’m headed to the city for Tuesdays@9. Can’t wait!

Hope you have a great night! Thanks for reading. -Connie
