Paddlehead Poem

by William Skink

Paddlehead by the drift
family fun, the branding shouts
then beg the state to grant your wish
for a sales tax to shake them down

Paddlehead new logo Moose
stupidest thing I’ve seen in years
your family fun’s no apple pie
this mountain town survives on beers

Hotel Zula, come on in
service sector jobs for all
or tech for transplants from the west
who cast a spell to enthrall

paddle my head is what I need
loving blows to set me straight
Missoula is a fantastic place
everything’s awesome, everything’s great
