Ode to Los Osos


It's said we need a sewer,

we need it right away.

'Cause the stuff that we exude

is fouling up the bay.

But since the bay is federal,

a "treasure" so they say,

the government should care for it,

Uncle Sam should pay.

We people of Los Osos

can ill afford the cost.

If forced to bear the burden,

many a dream is lost.

We'll have to sell our homes

and move away for good.

Leaving what has been for years

Our only neighborhood.

Give citizens here at home

some consideration.

And withhold a portion

of the dole to foreign nations.

If politicians could benefit

from helping solve our plight,

we'd have a brand-new sewer

"almost overnight."
