Seneca “Meadows”

by Bruce Bennett

“Seneca Falls Voters Weigh Garbage Odors Against Fear of Tax Hikes;
Will Landfill’s Mandated Dec. 2025 Closing Date Stick?”
Water Front Online blog

The landfill? Let’s face it. It reeks!
No wonder the Town Board now seeks
A date for its closing.
Who wants to be nosing
That mountain of garbage? Its peaks

Tower over and spoil the view.
Who’d want that beside them? Would you?
But wait. Higher taxes?
Perhaps that relaxes
Your outrage and urge to go Pew!
