Feast or famine out on the plain

On the Edge of Common Sense
By Baxter Black, DVM

In feast or famine, at least examine

the game we came to play

‘Cause win or lose, it’s how we use

the card that come our way...

“Just let’er rain,” the rancher said, “We’ve built up quite a thirst.

I know the low road’s plum washed out, the tank dam’s bound to burst.

We’ll have to plant the wheat again and clean the water gaps

But you won’t hear this fool complain if it reaches to my chaps!

The truth is, friends, we’ve needed this. We’ve been so dry so long.

I thought I’d have to sell the cows and pay the piper . . .
