I remember going across that Bridge,
almost every schoolday.
Our Bus, every morning, and afternoon,
went over that Bridge to pick-up,
or let-off, my many, old, school-friends
that went to McClure, Elem., and Shawnee Jr.,Sr.High.
It's still there.
I have just come from there.
It is still in use, yet very rusty.
I used to play pool
with the locals, and school-mates,
at the still remaining "Goods" store.
It wasn't open, and, to be honest,
it looked like it was/has been long shuttered.
Maybe I'm wrong.
Because I know, I saw,
that there are still people
living nearby in the few old houses
that still stand in that very old area.
Sincerely, Robert Boettcher
