Sixth Horse Appears, Armed with Poem
I spoke too soon. The very day, yesterday, that I post about the long-missing Ninth & Couch horse, a sixth horse is installed in that spot – this time tagged with a laminated orange note bearing a poem of discouragement to the would-be thief. Those of a more cynical nature might not expect the thief to be swayed by a poem, let alone stop to read it. I for one think warnings or threats are in order – in large, nasty, magic-marker letters. The way the tag is lying there shows that one side of it is largely blank -- so there’s room. I’m tempted…. except my policy is not to participate, only observe and record.
Here’s my first blog contest: What three to five words would work best to dissuade interference from the horse vandals? Write in your ideas (and please, spare us the standard hackneyed obscenities) and I will make sure they are seen by the horse project people. The winner will …. be honored in some way. … which will be announced later.
