Pacific city pride

Note: Saturday is Food Drive for the Postal Service.

Mailboxes tagged with blue bags
Around the corner and up the street
bags filled with food to share
tell us that our neighbors care
What that signifies is Pacific City pride

On that blue bag Saturday
postal letter carriers will carry more
than their fair share
It makes them feel grand
picking up those bags
filled with a helping hand

Neighbors, yes, it takes neighbors
working side by side
to build the kind of harmony
people are looking for
What that signifies is Pacific City pride

Blue bag, oh blue bag, true-blue
blue bag Saturday
mailmen will sing songs
as they drive along
picking up those blue, true-blue
blue bags of Pacific City Pride

– Gerald A. McBreen, Pacific poet laureate
