NIMBYs Prevail In Leawood KS To Shut Down 9Yr. Old's Free Little Library

I always thought that NIMBYs were to be found only in places like Newport Beach
Where intolerance and complaints to protect property values are within easy reach
NIMBYs cry out to protect property values at all cost
Tar and feather rehabs no matter how many lives lost
Protect the beaches from the inland hordes seeking a fire pit
Close down live entertainment--the complaints never quit
But now it seems the dreaded NIMBY curse can in Kansas be found
Leawood demands a nine year old’s free little library must be torn down
An eyesore? No, nor a structure to cause property values to fall
But yes as to an encouragement to get kids from video gaming in the Malls
Anything that promotes reading is a very good thing
Demands by NIMBY ideas are worse than a hornet’s sting
Welcome to the NIMBY world nine year old Spence
Your Leawood City Council has lost every ounce of common sense
Whatever you do, do not in front of your home put a hammock or chair
The NIMBYs will be soon snarling with all canine teeth bared
