The following short statement was just e-mailed to me by none other than my father, Les Carpenter Jr. A retired businessman and co owner of Barb's Sport Center (Barb being my mother)prior to them closing the store some time ago.
He tells me the words just popped into his head, not at all surprising given he has done his share or writing over the years. It seems he was thinking about the current state of our union and the foregoing is the summation of his thought.
I hope you enjoy this little ditty as much as I do.
Tis the day before Christmas
And all through the land,
The politicians are figuring
How to take from our hand,
All the rights that were won
By the brave and the true,
You can lose or fight back
The results we receive are left up to you.
Take a stand to deny that the majority should lose,
To a handful of those who try to abuse.
Those folks who work
For the things they get,
It's time to quit taking from the feds
All their dirty shit.
Great wisdom in a simple poem. Of course as I read it several times I could not but help replace the "dirty" with "collectivist" in my mind, but I guess that's just me.
Merry Christmas One and All ... Wishing You a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
