Honoring our Ancestors

Ode to Our Troglodyte

A Ritual Homage

Presented at the foot of the Caveman Statue, Grants Pass, Oregon

By Reverend Brad Carrier

Minister for the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Grants Pass

September 3rd, 1995

The following is the script for a fun but sincere ritual gathering of a few members of the UUFGP at the Caveman Statue. (Can’t find the photo of us gathered there.)

Oh, great troglodyte totem,

Thou art larger than life.

Thou art an image of our ancestors.

Thou hast prevailed

And passed on progeny.

Hence, we are.

We arst because thou werst.

And even at your worst

You muddled through – to the new.

And there, at your best,

You, with Life, said, “Yes!”

(I guess.)
