Was a new school board in old Menifee.
Mitchel was shaking as his salary pinched,
But he swore he'd hang in there and not give up an inch!
Benny was at the job corps with a devious grin,
"My plan was successful, I'll now be voted in!"
The teachers were nervous in their impatient wait,
The girls at the board office were ready to faint!
The County was itching to see if it's true,
Is it out with the old, and in with the new?
Then suddenly it thundered and lightning did flash!
Old Saint Nick hit the school, his sleigh it did crash!
He'd get no hep here, he'd have to call a Canadian Mountie,
Because most of our employees live out of the county.
Good folks went to school here and then off to UK,
They came back to teach but no jobs for them to stay.
So they packed up and left and found jobs in other schools.
But our tax dollars get spent in Powell County, boy are we all fools.
Old Saint Nick just shook his head in disgust.
He fixed up his sleigh and cleaned off the dust.
He worked by himself til late in the night,
Then flew away crying as he went out of sight.
But on the front page of the paper it read a different story,
"Sheriff Saves Santa!" article by Lori
