Reasons why Columbia may not qualify for Vibrant Cities

Reasons Why
Columbia may not qualify

Along one side of the Public Square
Is an unsightly ditch
Debris and dirt collects there
And cigarette butts are given a pitch.

Over the ditch is shabby wood
As a way to cross.
But these certainly don't look good
And as to safely, I'd score them a loss.

Some cities cover ditches with metal grates
That serve quite well
Allowing drainage. That illustrates
A city's awareness that upkeep can excel.

There are old cement light bases
Flecked with yellow paint
On the Square in five places,
No longer useful and beautiful they ain't.

The Garden Club workers promote
Columbia Square attractions.
The Art Council might give Columbia a vote If it weren't for the ugly (and solvable) distractions.
- Vonnie Kolbenschlag
