I put my faith in

the Cisco Kid

riding TV with fat

guy (Oh, Poncho!)—

through desert as

I watch — it’s

really happening!


It is as if I watch

through God’s own

window — just as I

watch the World

Series and see Lew

Burdette reach back

to fling (and can

read about it in next

day paper) — as I

watch Cisco reach

to shoot (good guy

that he is) straight

and true to knock

gun from evil one’s

hand, holy sweet

American strikeout.
