An Ode To Tarwheels! And The Union Groovers Meet the Mebanites! June 23, 2010
An Ode To Tarwheels!
I wonder about a lot of silly things,
From the very exciting to even boring!
As we roll around from town to town,
And why is a quiet strait a “sound”!
Why isn’t a strait straight?
Like there’s not enough to contemplate!
But what would people say they are,
When they’ve left their home and traveled far?
Israel’s kids were Israelites.
Would the folks in Mebane be Mebanites?
Would those in Hillsborough be Hillsbros?
Would some say Hillsburros?
And in Roxboro is it Roxbros?
Or do you think it Roxburros?
For sure people from Angler are Anglers!
Pleasant Gardens, Pleasant Gardeners?

Then folks from New Hope are New Hopers,
And folks from Spring Hope are Spring Hopers!

The folks from Apex Apexed?
HollySprings have Holly Springers!
Cluster Springs, Cluster Springers!

But if I can choose a name for me,
It would beat what other names can be.
It's a good place to be as far as I know!
I might be a Hillsbro, Bro!
Folks in New York are New Yorkers.
People in Pittsburg may be Steelers!
But even if they went to State or Duke,
North Carolina cyclists are Tarwheelers.
