In Tucson toucan tango and the armadillo sing
Marsupials make merry in the silver little spring
And a girl of gold I'd like to hold
Becomes that wise black king.

In Tucson toucan tango and the porcupines all fly
The cactus wrens make music that could make you almost cry
And a girl of gold I'd like to hold
Sells tickets to the sky.

In Tucson toucan tango and coyotes passing through
Tell tall tales about Cibola  while they dance a jig or two
And a girl of gold I'd like to hold
Is wond'ring what to do.

In Tucson toucan tango - no, enough, this tale is done
The Indians have scattered and the buffalo are gone
And the girl of gold I'd like to hold
Stands waiting in the sun.

John, I've been away a bit, and this is one of the first of yours I've seen - and it likes me a lot!  Welcome to Passions, hope you enjoy for a long, long time!

Thanks, Sunshine. First post over here - I usually hang out with the other masochists over in Critical.

Hey...John...nice job here....feel lucky though...I get a critical analysis on all the garbage I write...Either Balladeer sticks it to me, Nan deletes or changes, and actually, it's surprising my crap is ever considered as poetry anyway?...LOL....Welcome, and keep up the good work...
