Fair Money?

About the Wayne County Fair - a lot of my friends and I were wondering WHERE the money GOES from the fair?

Is it a lot, could you tell us?

Thank you.

The Patriarch replies:

Nolan:

Rather a strange question to ask of me, isn't it Nolan? And you don't even tell me which of the many Wayne Counties you are talking about. I don't know why you would think I would know anything about this issue. Obviously, this is something you are better placed to research personally than I am.

Fair Profits*

What happens to money at the Wayne County Fair?
I truly don't know and I really don't care.

Go ask the Fair accountant who dispenses
Whatever money is used for expenses.

Whether the Fair produces a profit or loss
Is a question to direct at the fairground boss

Determine what the cost of a crown might have been
To adorn the hair of this year's County Queen.

Surely someone knows what the carnies were paid
In return for long hours at their carnival trades.

Find out where the annual reports are filed
Those might tell you if the Board has gone wild.

Don't waste time asking me; I'm not from Wayne.
Considering such questions is only a pain.

What happens to money at the Wayne County Fair?
I truly don't know and I really don't care.
