Reader: Something stinks when RiNo tweeters covet scentometers
Neighbors are raising a stink over smells that they say emanate from a dog-snack factory that moved into the River North neighborhood -- now the hot-hot RiNo -- long before most of them did. This past spring, the city issued an odor citation to Kasel Associates Industries -- but the company's owner is raising a stink of his own.
The smelly saga inspired this poetic response from suethebastards:
As the Silver-Square dwellers set up their Christmas gear Ray Kasel's across the street, cooking a batch of fresh ear
Christmas is near and gifts require imagination This year's been rough, cause the lofts smell like bacon
Denver has an appetite and hungry for some tax The developments approved, oh-yes...fresh green-backs
Historic factories built into lofts like new With rail-yards nearby, what an impressive view
With the upcoming lawsuit and all that worry The evidence smells good but not to the jury
And what about that clever gift fit for a friend? Perhaps a wind sock located way downwind
A little something special for those RiNo tweeters The hottest new gadget this year, "scentometers"
With the notion of Santa, and all his reindeer Undergo a whiff, of flame broiled ear?
