HE KNEW HOW A NEIGHBOR SHOULD LIVE
As I was a walkin' down old lonesome road,|
'Tween nothing and yesterday's fare,
I saw me a tombstone right there in the dust,
Just like it was s'posed to be there.
It said here lies Rufus...the town's only clown,
Who had him a might too much gin.
He fell from the ledge of old Hummingbird ridge
But still has his same silly grin.
The marker was simple...he didn't have gold,
Or any delights of that kind.
But what he did have was much better by far,
He had all the love he could find!
He helped every neighbor though little he had,
And always was willing to give.
He wasn't too smart but he knew this one thing...
He knew how a neighbor should live!
The JUST FOR THE LOVE OF IT challenge
