Save Adderbury – A poetic contribution …

I publish a  contribution from a local resident who lives, I think, to the west of the Sor Brook.  While perhaps not the height of literary excellence, I thought it worth an airing.

Oh to be in Adderbury now that summer’s here 
When the cuckoo and the idiots do both appear.
With cries of “no” to this and “definitely no” to that 
They know not where to throw their hat. 
Having been rejected by the electorate 
Democracy has let them down since they did not prevail 
Could it be that their message was lost in the mail?
While we are raising funds for library, school and steeple
So therefore have but little time for small minded people.

With apologies to Robert Browning and the Morris Men
