Iowa Anomaly: A Town Ignored by Candidates


Ev’ry town in Iowa has candidates galore,

pleading with their voters while they knock on ev’ry door.

But Eagle Grove is quiet; there’s no Clinton, Trump, or Cruz.

The residents are able to lay down and take a snooze.

The Town that Politics Forget, is what they ought to boast —

and stay in husking bees and corn cob jelly all engrossed.

There’s something very pleasant about villages sedate

where politicians never come to bluster and to prate.

Oh, Eagle Grove, the French would call your town the ideal beau;

and may it ever thus enjoy such quiet status quo!
