Oklahoma? Few folks fantasize
Of living there with those guys.
But if you’re an Okie, what might you see?
A bunny hopping into low trees
Brown leaves lifted up by the breeze.
Raindrops clinging under the rafters
Children filling the air with laughter
Catching snowflakes on the tongue
Plenty warm to do that because the sun
May still show through in rain and snow
Crazy weather, don’t you know?
Snipping off the last of the roses
Not much aroma left for the noses.
A colorful pansy and a purple mum,
Even geraniums still overcome.
Many folks go to Sunday School
And try to live by the golden rule.
Have a reputation for gun totin’
Generally conservative when we go votin’
Still eat steak, bacon, and ham
High on fat, but there’s not much sham,
And there’s still gyms and nutrition stores
Makin’ money, keepin’ open their doors.
Most Okies believe God is with us
And to one another, we say “Merry Christmas.”
So from this Okie who’s been blessed
And generally speaking for the rest . . .
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOD BLESS!
