Wisconsin’s poet laureate: Tony Stella

This is absolutely hilarious. From Iron County resident Anthony Stella via ” Woodsperson


(With apologies to Robert Frost)
Whose woods these are I think I know.
Gogebic holds the leases though;
They will not see me stopping here,
To map the things their maps won’t show.
The lobbyists must think it queer
that Bulletproof is nowhere near
And I can hike down from the lake
Without the slightest bit of fear.
I find asbestos in my wake.
They say there must be some mistake;
They say I broke the law to keep
A sample that they claim is fake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And mines to stop before I sleep,
And mines to stop before I sleep
