fn the world of snodern verses
No one ever uses meter
No one writes in Marlowe's cour!t
Poets try to be Walt Whitman.
Writers' thoughts might flow in rhythms
Trochees have a certain value
And they're useful while we'i e hunting
Hunting the Nebraska Hb'ral.
Neblibs are not found in Conoress
In among the likes of Curtis
Not since Callan (Johnson landslide)
Has a Neblib been in Congress. '
Now that Martin is retiring
Someone young can be elected
But a Neblib will not do it
There are none in west Nebraska
In the mansion near the Tow?r
Lives Jim Exon, called a "Oerro' -
He could be what wa are huntir.3
(Neblibs sometimes say they're L:
No, he isn't, he's like Curtis
Not like all the Eastern Demos 1
Hates the Legislature's spending , ' ' - '
Hates the thought of raising taxes.
Over H and in the Tower
There are lots of politicians , . t..
Maybe there we'll find a Neblib
Maybe there are men like Teddy.
But there aren't, except for Fowler -
Any Neblibs in the building ....-
Even Ernie, Ernie Chambers
Voted "no" on student drinking, '
Can it be there are no Neblibs?
Can a plague have wrecked their r " bcrs?
Maybe they are all in hiding
Hiding from unfriendly people.
We've received a secret memo "
Telling of a Neblib hideout '
In the South of old Nebraska , . m
In a basement, no name on it. . ' -
There the Neblibs, several dozen
All the Neblibs in NebrasK.a
There they talk and trade ideas
Tell of voting for McGovern.
Only one will speak to strangers
And he whispers, fearful, frightened.
Lucky, too, he speaks trochaic
So we need not change the meter.
"There were Neblibs in Nebraska
There are very few at present
Since the '30s' Great Depression
Most of us have gone to Kansas.
There may be a few in Lincoln
There are some, they say, in Wilber
But we'll rise, and rise in numbers
Maybe even win an office.
But we can't, not this November
Cannot win a seat in Congress
Cannot oust young J.J. Exon
Cannot even battle Hruska."
"Will you send a message with us,
Words for other Neblibs elsewhere?"
"There are none but lust the same I'll
Say a word to make you happy,
Richard Nixon, he can save us
Help us win a public office
He must speak at Chuck Thone rallies
He must say he voted with him.
If he does, then in November
All the folks who voted for him
Red, embarrassed, will be quiet
And we'll win that one election."
