Muhammad Yusuf

Muhammad YusufI loved Spoon River more than most
who were born here. I
gave more to Spoon River than most
who took from her. As
the children of great families
fled as soon as they
could, I brought more and more of my
family here. And
while the entrenched factions bickered
and warred over their
petty disagreements, I stayed
quiet, respected everyone.
Because soon, they will all be gone.
And it will be my
children who will become the great
family of this
town. Don’t worry, we will care for
it better than you.
