Hospitabell


Big aldermanic race brewing in our neighborhood. Folks ringing our doorbell everyday. We live in an area that’s already zoned for Jehovah’s Witnesses and aggressive freelance yardworkers.

Some might erect a “no soliciting” sign. What we did was finally replace the cracked empty hull of a doorbell.

Somebody’s knockin’ at the door
Somebody’s ringin’ the bell
Somebody’s knockin’ at the door
Somebody’s ringin’ the bell
Do me a favor
Open the door
And let ‘em in
—Wings (later satirized by Franklin Ajaye)
