Seize The Opportunity, Yo

To the Editor:

My message today comes as a neighbor and friend, not as a member of the Legislative Council and Chair of its Finance Committee.   While the words of eminent philosophers always abound, here’s a paraphrase of the one they call Eminem.  It’s about the funding referendum scheduled for this Saturday, October 5, at the Middle School.

Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity

To seize something you need. One moment

Would you capture it or just let it slip?

Yo

 

Lose yourself in the munificence, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

Lose yourself in the munificence, the moment

You own it, you better never let it go

You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow

This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo

 

Success is our only option, failure's not

Chalk Hill, I love you, but this it’s not Home

Our kids can’t grow old in Monroe's lot

So here I go, it's my shot.

Feet, fail me not, this may be the only opportunity that I got

 

So people don’t fail now,

Don’t get distracted wow

Saturday’s comin’, it’ll soon be here

You can find the Middle School so you won’t shed a tear

And vote for the gift that coming our way

If I can only get there and vote to say, yay

 

You can do anything you set your mind to, Newtown.

 

Vote the way you want but, please join me in voting.  I’ll be voting either aye, yes, in the affirmative, or all of the above.

Thanks.

George Ferguson
