A Hard Choice by Blair Gaulton

A Hard Choice
This community
outlasted vicious storms
isolation
and much more
for many years
they pulled together
whenever there was trouble
helping each other to recover
not an easy life
somehow managed all right
now resettlement is knocking on their door
depending on how they decide
the community will disappear
existing no more
only in memories
or stay upon their native shore
Been promised a lot to move
life will improve
better services
probably true
I don’t know how I’d vote
do you?
