“It came without ribbons; it came without tags!”

Twas the first dawn of spring, and all through the hood

All the people were stirring, all those who could

One Saturday morn, when they could have slept late

South Stipeley got up, for a nine a.m. date.

They came with their families, they came with their mugs

One neighbour brought doughnuts, one neighbour brought hugs

The city sent work-gloves and sacks for them all

So they hatched up a plan and poured coffee’s last-call.

Each group took a lane, and they stooped and they bent

Picking up garbage and junk as they went.

Then they piled all their sacks for the sack picker-upper

And gathered again for a mid-day supper.

And lo and behold it was not even noon

A hard day’s work done none too soon!

So with sausages, burgers and veggie kabob

South Stipeley Neighbours finished the job.
