Proposed: a new official State Toast for North Carolina

A Blog Written By Scenic NC Board Member & Attorney, Ryke Longest

The New State Toast

Here’s to the home of the billboard blight

Which sprout like weeds both day and night

Where trailer parks sprawl outside the gates

Of McMansionvilles in the Old North State

Here’s to the land of the builder’s buck

Where the trout and his friends are out of luck

Where Chuck Koch has bought the vote

And caught poor DENR by the throat

Here’s to the land of boom and bust

Leaving our parks to close and rust

While begging others to send us trash

So lobbyists can make some cash

Here’s to the land of the coal ash pit

Where toxic sludge is allowed to sit

While Rucho calls all those frackers here

To give their cash and bend his ear

Who needs Yucca Mountain, we have Jones Street

Pile all that waste beneath their feet

Maybe then their toes will feel the heat

Of the Hell we’re headed for, tout suite.
