Appreciation poem

Felicia Hendricks, Lentegeur

40 years ago I were introduced to you

Over the years you have brought me laughter and sometimes
tears

Some of joy and hope

And some of despair

When people don’t care

As long as the Plainsman
was delivered to my door

Who needs to get one from the grocery store?

It was always free of charge

Not a cent we did pay

Well, what more can I say!

It brought us news

And views

From our neighbourhood

Whether you want to buy or
sell

He will do it in a spell!

Whatever you need, you
name it

The Plainsman got it

Long live the Plainsman

Well life begins at 40 they say

Let’s keep on hope and pray.
