1st draft Poem entry: WDC's daily Writers Cramp contest

Lynn, Lynn,
My city of sin
From King’s Lynn,
from Norfolk,
From England
Settled 1635
Incorporated 1850
In honor Samuel Whiting Jr.
Mechanical Messiah’s
Some sinners
Did they build
In the place of a vortex
High on her hills
Overlooking the sea
A-top its Out-cropping’s
crystal granite Hills
“Lynn, Lynn,
The city of Sin…”
So long ago,
Longfellow himself
The Wadsworth Henry
Sat on its beach
As the legend is known
Penned Mellifluous stanza’s
Which he named
The Bells of Lynn.
Lynn, Lynn.
I plagiarize thee
The City of Sin.
The town of my birth
Where I still live…
“Lynn, Lynn,
The city of Sin.
You never come out
The way you went in.”
