The Peace Wreath

I posted an article on the Peace Wreath incident in Pagosa Srprings Colorado a couple of days ago and recieved the following little gem of a piece from Jim Fuge of Durango Colorado in the comments for that post. I loved it so much that I want to share it here for all to enjoy!

The Peace Wreath
By Jim Fuge of Durango Colorado

Every Loma at Lindaville liked Peace a lot

But the Grinch and his Cronies certainly DID NOT!

This Grinch hated Peace!

The whole Peacetime season!

Now please don't ask why, no one quite knows the reason!

It could be perhaps he just liked to fight, or

Maybe his head was screwed on to the Right.

But we think the most likely reason of all

May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

No matter the reason.

His heart or his head,

He felt really bad, and troubled instead.

The more the Grinch dwelled on the Peace Sign thing

the more he ached to stop the whole thing!

"I must stop this Peace Wreath from being,...but how!

"I know what I'll do, I won't stand this abuse"

He thunked to himself "All I need's an excuse"

He looked for an excuse to take the Wreath down.

But, since excuses are scarce there were none to be found.

Did that stop this ol' Grinch...?

NO! The Grinch simply said

"If I can't find an excuse I'll make one instead!"

He did better than that, he made a Big List,

and Right here they are, and some we have missed.

The Wreath may offend, or it might not be nice,

it might be for Pagans, who drink wine with ice!

Maybe it's code, all secret and sneaky,

Maybe these Loma's are just being cheeky!

Then he fired his cronies (who weren’t so uptight),

They said it’s not bad, but the Lights kept him up nights!

He puzzled and twisted and puzzled some more,

He listed excuses, till his Puzzler was sore.

Then finally his Puzzler hit on the Thing!

Maybe really this Wreath’s not such a bad Zing!

Maybe Peace to the World isn’t so bad,

Maybe Peace to the World, shouldn’t make him so Mad!

Imagine; a world where folks spoke up for Peace!

Like Lisa, the Loma, with her Peace Wreath!

And what happened then...?

In Lindaville they say

That the Grinch's small heart

Grew three sizes that day!

And the minute his heart didn't feel quite so tight

He could answer his phone and not hide all the night!

He stopped all his Trickzies, and called off his goons

...and he hung back the Wreath, by the light of the moon!


Thanks Jim for sharing this with us!

Peace y'all
