County Folk

​I once knew a country folk

Acquainted with rustic life

Who spoke in ascent clear

But not by radio time

This got me wondering 

If cowboys speak in tongues

This cowboy lands on air

Once a market cycle 

Post worship,evening time

As sun descends to leave 

Ensconced in his own world

Intoning out in tongues.

If its the air that does it

Take me along with you 

That soaring in the sky

I too may speak in tongues 

One thing is left to say

This cowboy known on air

Has plucked his golden fleece

No more the one you knew 

Now called Doctor cowboy.
