Portland Limerick

Business Week trashed Portland as the most unhappy city in the U.S.   Whatever! The Edge column in the Oregonian is asking for rebuttals in the form of a limerick contest. Very appropriate with St. Patty’s Day coming up.  So here’s my attempt…I thought about changing the last line to “So Biz Week can go to hell.” But I don’t know if that is OK for the paper. It’s funnier though 🙂

Whine Country

True that Eeyore would acclimate well
To where damp and drippy sighs dwell,
But Portland’s gray skies do slight harm.
Whine country still keeps its charm,
Revealing fresh air and roses to smell.
