Where There's Will, There's a Way.


Where there's a Will, there's a way.-By-MFB III


It's dusk
and the highway

rolls on endlessly
before me
as I ride its

the sunset is

once again
intensely unique
when it's

all around you
in a state that

has no boundaries
like a chariot of flames
the aluminum skin

of my LeSabre
gleams with orange-

yellow refractions
flowing like a

drop of oil
in a puddle of rainwater.

Soon I pass the

hometown of Will Rogers
who made his last

exit in a plane
on plains like these.

"He never met

a man he didn't like."
It might have been fun

to give him a run
on that one for his money


His untarnished image

is now reduced to
movie theatre appearences
begging money for a charity
all that clever wisdom now gone.

His wit was much dryer
then the dust of his bones.

Tulsa was a tussle
severe thuderstorms
hail, and tornado warnings
and a big yellow

eighteen wheeler
trying hard to give

me an enema
at 80 miles an hour.]

Oklahoma City

lies ahead
and I will be

there soon
I can see how a man
could grow to

 love this state
it's unpredictable
it's 10 gallon hats..

pulled pork

BBQ's sandwiches,
stockyards, and a

people that are strong
and set in their ways...
but not unkind. ]

I will stay here

only briefly
but my memories

will not be
as brief as my stay
the highway rolls

on before me
as I sail it's concrete surf
toward a bed

I've paid to keep
for a long and

hard-earned sleep.
