A Crafton women, Season Ciechanowski, has chosen to inspire her neighborhood with free poetry.
She places the poems in a cardboard box on an old rickety chair in front of her house.
Over the last 6 months, someone, or some people, have chosen to vandalize the box, steal the box, dump coffee into the box and even steal the old chair.

Seriously? Hey! I’m no fan of coffee. I hate it as a matter of fact but, I wouldn’t ever consider pouring it on this woman’s free poetry. And the chair? Pittsburghers have better looking chairs that they use for parking spaces. So why steal it? As a matter of fact, I can’t say I’m even a fan of poetry but, if I was having a bad day, I’d certainly appreciate one of Season’s free poems.
The cool news is, she installed a video camera system so it shouldn’t be long until we have some pics of the rickety-chair-old-cardboard-box-full-of-motivating-free-poems-coffee-wasting vandals.
Dear poem vandals,
involved in these neighborhood scandals,
we hope you get caught red-handed
and then your’ hands get tightly gum-banded
to the rashy, hairy underarm pits
of a summer-sweaty garbage truck driver with the sh#ts!
If that doesn’t help
teach you to keep your hands to yourself,
with a Steelers shirt and Troy Polamalu hair
we’ll just strap you to the chair
then drop you off in the middle of Baltimore
with a sign that says, “Joe Flacco’s mother is a …….JAGOFF!”
(I never WAS very good at poems! Was it obvious?)
