Ode to METRO

John Ludlow_thb

by John Ludlow

1METRO is the shepherd….I do not want.

2It maketh me to buy up green pastures: It preventeth me from building beside still waters.

3It sappeth my soul: It leadeth me in the paths of regionalism for Portland’s sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of METRO, It fears no upheaval: for METRO says “I’m with you and my rod and my staff will guide thee.”

5METRO preparest a table before me in the presence of mine “stakeholders”: It anointest my head with assurances they that are listening.

6Surely pleading and struggling for local vision and control shall follow me… all the days of my life: and I will NOT dwell in the house of METRO forever.

John Ludlow is the Clackamas County Commission Chair
