HASH TRASH - Run 636

HASH TRASH - Run 636
Short n' hummusy

It was very hot, but not very, very as we circled up for what was scheduled to be a short run because of some very important football game (translation: soccer) between England and some other team that won. Sanitary was deputized as RA and, having been annointed a man of the cloth (terry? cheese?) was charged with leading the assembled in following prayer:

Blessing of the Hares

Bless these hares,
Bless this trail,
Coppus no catch us,
Farmer no shoot us,
Doggus no bite us,
Heatus no stroke us,
Plenty of cold beer to drink,
Coitus non interruptus.

On-one, on-two, on-three and on-on! The hares had promised shady glens, wood nymphs, elves, sprites and magic fountains. As a walker this time around, your Humble Scribe can vouch for the glens -- apparently we were trampling through a decorative tree and garden suppliers' annual harvest -- but nothing more winged than a bee. The real magic, however, was that the runners and walkers met up at at the halfway point at almost exactly the same time. A heartfelt prayer was raised unto the heavens:

Our Lager
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy drink.
Thy will be drunk,
I will be drunk,
At home as in the tavern.
Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillages,
As we forgive those who spill against us.
And lead us not into incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers.
For thine is the Beer, The Bitter, and the Lager,

Who says prayers go unanswered? Not only was there beer at the end, but the hares provided homemade hummus of the Gods.
