N THE MAIL CLERK
CAN BECOME POETICAL
Willmar Post Office Requests Pub
lication of Verses Regarding
Mail Early and Often
The Christmastide is drawing near.
When parcel post looms high,
Clerks and postmen plead with you
"Mail early," is their cry.
Of course you want your friends to set
Their gilts by Christmas day,
And Uncle Sam will back you up
If you will mail them right away.
But if you kesp on waiting
Until the last few days,
There'll be congestion in the mails,
And terrible delays.
Just think how disappointed
The kiddies all will be,
If your presents came too late
To hang on the Christmas tree.
Your gifts need not be opened
If posters you will use.
"Don't open until Christmas."
Is a seal that you should choose.
I wonder if you realize
The hardships of the clorks.
If you neglect to mail this week,
And thus your duty shirk.
And picture the poor postmen
Laden down with shoulders lame
Fcr although 'tis "Merry Christmas"
They must all work just the same.
So remember, friends, mail early.
If you'd spread the Christmas cheer,
Mail early and mail often
And delays you need not fear.
