Lawrence


Lawrence, my grand hometown down by the Kaw
Oh, how I love her beauty and her lights
As, once over Pleasent Grove, I behold
The dorms of KU's campus lit up bright

I love the people who take pride in her
How when asked who the best 23 was
MJ doesn't always trump Simien
But, most of all, I love Lawrence because...

She took time to nurture a Kansas boy like me

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
