Key to the City: Gerald Herron

Faron Hall, a homeless man,
saved two people from drowning;
the mayor came down, shook his hand,
did not give him a key to the city.
A prestigious award one would think!
Now I hear they’re handing them out like candy:
Henry Winkler, Gene Simmons.
“One of these things doesn’t belong with the other”.
But in this case,
can you tell me which two don’t belong?


From the book of poetry, “Days Gone By” (2013).
