Once Upon A Time

Judge Rembert
Guest Columnist


Once Upon A Time was...
Was the way stories used to start...
Some were scary...
Some were funny...
Most made kids and adults...
People in general think...
Usually think about good lessons...

BUT in 2020...
Once Upon A Time starts...
Starts thoughts of removal...
Removal of history...
Removal of celebrations...
Removal of holidays...



3 - Lincoln County Comm - Change of Meeting

No person's life is perfect...
It was not to be heaven on earth...
Mistakes were made and...
And more will be made...
Humans are not perfect...

Once Upon A Time used to be...
Be fun and looked forward to...
We all celebrated the day off...
We did not relive the past...
We did not want the past back...
We just wanted to enjoy a day...
A day to relax...

But in 2020 all has changed...
People just want to fuss...
People want to relive the mistakes...
What a shame we are taking...
Taking the fun out of the day off...

We humans have destroyed...
Destroyed these days off...
We have made them days of fussing...
Days to relive every...
Every mistake of the past...
Turned a fun day into...
Into a day of pain...
A day of fussing...

What a shame we can not see...
See the mistakes and build...
Build a country that can have a day off...
A day off to have fun...
Fun for the entire country...

She puts Red, White and Blue up...
Up on her porch...
She hopes no one comes and fusses...
She remembers America...
She remembers less fussing...
She wishes she could give that...
Give that to her Great Grands...

She misses America...
