No Parade, 1938
NO PARADE Sometime the guy who gave the order to cancel that circus' parade yesterday will remember remember a crying kid along "the curb, and he'll wonder if the money he saved was worth it. Sometime the guy who gave that- that- order may have a friend let him down, and perhaps he'll remember that he used to have a lot of folks cooperating with him in West Palm Beach until he let them down. Sometime the guy who gave that order may find himself broke and perhaps he'll remember remember that there were a lot of kids whose fathers were broke and on relief,' and the only part of the circus they could have, seen would have been the parade. ' Sometime the guy who gave that order will be jolted by a broken promise and perhaps he'll remember the promise he broke to a couple of thousand kids. ' ' ' ' Sometime the guy who gave that order will remember- remember- that he could have postponed or cancelled the afternoon performance and still held the parade, and maybe he'll wonder if the money he saved was worth slapping a bunch of kids in the face. A circus parade is only an incident in a long lifetime, of course. But wouldn't you hate to have THAT guy's long lifetime?
