Post Office

POed at the PO

Song by Suzy Williams

 

COME AND SEE!  A TRAGEDY!

THE VENICE POST OFFICE BY THE SEA

THE BRIGHTEST JEWEL IN OUR CROWN

NOW THEY WANT TO SHUT IT DOWN

TAKE THE HEART FROM OUR COMMUNITY!

 

Since 1939, the Venice Post Office

Has been the place to meet and greet and mail

It’s a classy destination in a circular location

and now they want to put it up for sale!

 

For years we ‘ve been adorin’

The brass Terazzo floorin’

And the walls of a rich mahogany

And our pleasure has been plural

with that Abbott Kinney mural

He’s our special visionary deity!

 

Just look how this is angled

We are slowly being strangled

Cutting window clerks and janitors

and stamps

With no intention for success,

no wonder it it is such a mess

And sadly, it’s a common circumstance

 

If you read the constitution,

there’s a postal institution

And a militia to protect us night and day

We get billions for the latter,

but the former doesn’t matter

And they want to take our Post Office away!

 

LET THIS NOT BE A  TRAGEDY!

THE VENICE POST OFFICE BY THE SEA

THE BRIGHTEST JEWEL IN OUR CROWN

WE WON’T LET THEM SHUT IT DOWN

WE’LL KEEP THE HEART OF OUR COMMUNITY!
