all but a few

i bet you do not know the town of saugerties,
with its lighthouse on the hudson river, opus 40,
and the legendary big pink. why would you?
it is just another town in upstate new york, usa.
but there is one interesting fact about the people
who live there. if all but a few decided to leave
the town, it would be the same void as the one
after all the victims of gun violence in the states
last year alone.
