When Pigs (Almost) Fly
By Patrick A Granfors

You may recall my whiny little poem written last June describing the US Postal Service’s abysmal progress in replacing our damaged community mailbox. Well, last Friday I got a glimpse of flapping wings. A new Mailbox on the driveway!! It only took 89 days to install. Saturday morning I went to the Post Office to retrieve my key. No supervisor. Monday Eileen tried. No supervisor – out on routes allegedly testing keys. Today – don’t know yet. Jeez, I’m on pins and needles.

I’ve been told that pigs can fly

It’s not often that they do

I almost got delirious

When on my drive they flew

 

A shiny box had been installed

I thought I’d get my mail

But without a key ‘twas hopeless

And lousy service did prevail

 

And what about those flying oinks

I guess I’ve been forsaken

It appears to me their glide path

Produced a heaping pile of bacon

 

So when life hands you a lemon

It’s really plain to see

Enjoy a glass of lemonade

To wash down that BLT
