Dq )LPHIN TALE 2 To send a legal: typesetting@plumasnews,com To send an advertisement: mail@phmasnews.com THE FEET OF CLAY We make enduring heroes from afar As stories circulate that give them fame. In Hollywood, the hero is a star; In sports, it's he whose skill has won the game. In war, the hero is the one who serves; In politics, it's he who shares your views; In daffy news, it's he whose steady nerves Might save one's life or dangers might defuse. But none of these are persons otherwise, For they exist as legends not as men; But when we meet the men, some doubts arise, For feet of clay become apparent then. No man's a hero to the ones who know him well, For close acquaintance breaks the legend's magic spell.
