I suppose one more post like this – for old time sake.
Grinny’s Land of Enchantment
The land where horses fly…
And bulls rage.
And cowboys are thin and lanky.
The lions are colourful .
The hitch hiking hard.
And ranch bosses mean and cranky.
Everything is spiky in the Land of Enchantment since they hardly get any rain (Grinny had prickles in his bottom for days. See below).
And where Grinny first sees Road Runner giving him the eye as he flashes by on the side of the train .
It was on the border, around the camp fire, that Grinny comes up with his plan.
He’ll wait on the road, for days if he must, to show Road Runner who’s the real man.
Three days Grinny waits in the middle of the road, but his adversary never appears.
So by consensus Grinny is awarded the race to the thunderous Mexican cheers.
The Mayor of Columbus ( pistol stuck in his boot), an official of very high station,
Presents Grinny with the Deformed Carrot Award . . . in keeping with the situation!
