The musical cowboy Gene Autry
had a fondness for playing the lautry.
He went, when he won
on a seven year run
of gambling, crime, and debautry.

Cheney Flies Coach

How, you ask,
did my day go?
Aside from the nine hour delay
on the way to Laredo??!!
We were so far back on the tarmac
I could see the tire rack
on my Cadillac Escalade!!
A heart attack would be an upgrade
compared to the mess you made!!
I won't even mention the lukewarm Nescafe escapade!!

I finally made my great escape
from Kommissarsintown.
I now can look behind me
so i'm slowly calming down.

Meet Neal–
esophageal music lover.
He soundproofs his bathroom
with an old duvet cover,
then throat sings
like a Tuvan Louvin brother.

Full of song

and fond of beer.
The country western gondolier.
His heart's enlarged.
His liver's failin'.
Say a prayer
for "Venice Waylon".
