GARY, INDIANA

Gary,
ye shall be gray
and polluted so
Chicago
may shine.
Thus it hath been deemed
so it hath
become.

  1. While the sonnet is cute, it does not say much about Gary. For an in depth look at Gary, IN, the "Steel City;" past, present and future; a trip to Dave's Den at http://GDYNets.WebNG.com/gary.htm may prove enlightening -

  2. I appreciate your response, DY. I know I've grossly underappreciated Gary here. It was a brief observation as I was looking outside the airplane window on approach to Midway.

    Lord knows how many buildings and vehicles in this country and around the world are built with Gary-produced steel...and the blood, sweat and tears of its residents over generations.
