I know what’s wrong with folks in other towns
They don’t have as many color-coded trash containers.
Two theaters, an art school for special students
Or the houses aren’t quite as nice
We are more special than your average US town
Of course all Americans share
In our national exceptionalism
It’s just that Coronado is extra-exceptional
Just look at our bridge
Built to create permanent lane-changing employment.
We have the most elegant police station in the country.
It’s just hard to find the front door
All our lawns are very green
Many are artificial
Which just shows our level of concern for the environment
And our average family includes 1.5 dogs
With all our faults
There is no better place to live
In this most difficult of years
Lucky we live Coronado
