OK Corral

In translation to English, some of the finer parts of the word plays in German are lost.

Christmas at the O.K. Corral

All brave people run swiftly around,
Grandparents, parents and child.

All is solemnly silent at OK Corral.
Three men tonight move up to Boot Hill.

And from the saloon, the gambling house,
with glassy eyes, Doc Holiday looks out.

On the boot tips golden caps are blinking
by watch chain, tin star and spores, a dream.
Virgil blinks like a Christmas tree

Colt, Smith and Wesson with a lead core,
brave Wyatt carries with pleasure.

Even Morgan got out a festive song of his pipes.

The baked apple hiss, you hear it slug
and Billy hit freshly the snow

Contemplative red seeps into the vest
and gently the remnants of Tom pour down

Gun smoke like of the smokers pipe
and Frank McLaury gets peaceful and stiff.

Silver bullets hit everywhere,
it has to be Christmas at Tombstone by now.

True peace between nations will only happen when there is true peace within people’s souls.
Black Elk

“Tell me, and I will listen.
Show me, and I will understand.
Involve me, and I will learn.”
Lakota Proverb

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
(Reinhold Niebuhr, but the origin is debated)
