Something There Is About A Missourian

Night Sonnets
by Stephen the Plebeian
Something There Is About A Missourian
To John Ashcroft, and The government of Elitist Apartheid, the U.S. Senate

Something there is about a Missourian, some people will just not like
Perhaps it's obstinate showmeism, or the way he fishes for bass, or pike
Maybe it's a willingness to compromise, on anything but a principle
Or plain conservative logic, God given conscience, common sense simple
It could be that nerveless confidence, that steadfastness under fire
Some will think it arrogance, to rise above the fray, the melee-mire
Something there is about a Missourian, some folks will not abide
That tenacious Missouri loyalty, and that onerous Missouri hide
Something there is about a Missourian, some people can not love
He'll no more be a people's populist, no more than the Lord above

But wicked winds, at times, become a raging tempest
When the wisest of Captains are fearful afloat

And good men will thank Divine Providence
For one faithful Missourian, within their boat



Stephen Wayne
