“When Teddy Comes Marching Home Again”

´

When Teddy comes marching home again.  Hurrah, hurrah.

D.  C. on  Grandparent’s Day,  Hurrah, hurrah.

We’ll take to the streets in a silent storm,

Our cause is Teddy’s health care reform.

As the church bells peal on that Sunday morn.

´

If Teddy is more than his body then he is here with us today.   He is marching us with step by step, heartbeat by heartbeat, mile by mile.  Teddy described health care reform as “The Cause of His Life”

´

When Teddy comes marching home again,  Hurrah,  hurrah.

The place is here and now is when,  Hurrah, hurrah.

A father’s tear, a child’s smile,

As we join hands for the last mile

We will retire the no-treatment  strife,

….for the joy of the loving wife,

……..The Cause of Teddy’s Life.

(To the tune of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”)

My Shambhala Village

Shambhala is a mythical village of enlightened people, possibly in the mountains of Tibet. It is in the vicinity of Shangri-la, but further up the mountain and cooler. We have a full life here and you are welcome to come join us.
