A poem about leaving town

Dear Editor:People come and people go, and some will stay a while longerEven when the good ones leave, the place’ll always get strongerBecause the best and the brightest make their way to the topWhen they smell the roses over there, and aren’t afraid to stopAnd where they’ve been helps ’em slay that big-city mongerAs an old song wonders where the lawyers in love get downJust take something with you when you leave the little townOh, help us remember, s’not all there in those singles barsSo, the 9th Judicial bar loses one of its brightest young starsAnd the lawyers around here wish all the best to Jeffrey TownRichard DallyCarbondale
