Chamboida




The yellow brick road
Runs Northeast out of town
Miss Liberty relocated south.
For lower labor costs
And friendlier atmosphere

The rednecks are bewilered
Nobody speaks English
And their neighbors?
Eat nothing but fish.

The signs in twenty languages
Are the new seed for
The next generation.
As everyone looks for the wizard
Who isn't there.
