When the Gobies Rule

My friends you needn’t worry

About new fees and the likes;

Nor about the miles of traffic,

While waiting for a light.

The home business license soon to come

Will be a paltry thing;


And, inner strife at Round Tables —

A yawn they’ll hardly bring.

But when our friend, Sir Babbitt

Declares our Malibu,

A Habitat for Gobies!

You had best to think it through!

From sea to door, and along our shores,

Everything will change!

The rest that plagues us constantly

Will be of minor range.

The collapsing roads and landslides

Can be handled as they do;

But Malibu, a “Goby Habitat”?

Will be hard to believe is true.

Consider what you cannot do,

When the Gobies are in charge;

They will override the TSG’s

And the commission’s deep regard.

But be assured that all will out,

When the Gobies rule!

Let’s take it with a happy smile

And show them we’re no fools.

H. Emmett Finch
