 a short note on Frank Rand, Mark Dalton, Douglas Christiansen, Bill Haslam,
Tubby Smith, and Gloria Vanderbilt, plus Chris Raun, Neel Rao, Trenton Passmore

maybe Douglas Christiansen is right,
we can not afford to fight

a fight leads to anger,
a disagreement causes everyone frayed emotion

when we shift our eyes from Hanover, to Silicon Valley, or Fort Worth,
from Houston, Rice University, to Nashville, Vanderbilt University, we have joy

we rain good words toward Bryce Drew, Mark Wu, Mark Dalton, Nicholas Zeppos,
Lydia Horwart, Mark Wrighton, Comelius Vanderbilt, Bishop Holland McTyeire,

go, Frank Rand, Bill Haslam, Tubby Smith, Jim Strickland, Greg Abbott,
relax, Stephan Wilson, Abby Shachar, Raymond Brown, Victor Boschini, Besty Price,

some students have doubts,
while others do not

do get on the purple bus,
tour with Honglan Sun, Shaohua Rao, Ai Qun Li, Ai E Wu, Bing Ma, Ai E Dai

we say good things to Will Roger, Kendall Murphy, Ryan Kim, Jiyu Gao, Ming Gao,
thanks a lot, we do love Nashville, Shihe Liu, Min Wang, Hounian Peng, Yunqing Fan,

from Brush Muntain, Catawba, to Kingston, Hunt County of Texas, we remember family of Leon Murphy

foot notes

last call

indian pancakes
the tom yum noodle is delicious

banana island
a quiet place for a lost soul

Audie Leon Murphy
the hero of 1950s, the milestone of world war II

Raymond murphy, Thomas Murphy, Pamela Murphy,
Terry Wayne Moore, Virginia Murphy, Elena Murphy,

row by row,
all come in to seashore

hear the cotoyo call,
we smile at the humor of some magpie near Pima, Arizona, and Arlington, Texas

name more,
we see Teresa Murphy, Trevordia Murphy, Matilda Morgan, Wanda Hendrix, Chet Atkins

the spirits circulate
Guy Mitchell, Scott Turner, Bob Wills, Crystal Murphy, David Spec McClure, Sarah Murphy

now, we go deep to see Mildred Murphy, Wanda Bass, Eddie Murphy, Edward Murphy,
a song writer, an actor, Woody Guthrie shine along Jeff Coody, Marian Cooksey, Dan Fisher

amazing grace sinks in,
as Coyle birds fly and grin

good things shall rise, Pat Guthrie, Sally Kern, Berniece Guthrie, Ben Loring,
Kim David, Ruth Scott, Debra Guthrie, Howard Guthrie, Daryl Guthrie, Eddie guthrie

Okay, Legislators and house representatives,
beautiful postings for Juliet Lewis, Priscilla Andrews, Jacob Zuellig, Ralph Guthrie, Tom Guthrie

Paris does give love to those, especially when you name yourself William Guthrie, Emanuel Rahm,
Mike Schulz, Mark Allen, Jack Fry, Brian Bingman, Ron Sharp, Charles Wyrick, Ervin Yen

how about Wayne Shaw, John Ford, Marty Quinn, Jeffrey Hickmen,
why we shall respect Lee Denney, Gary Banz, Scott Biggs, Mike Brown, Lisa Billy?

we shall relax, let all of you promote yourself, upstairs,
thanks to David Brumbaugh, John Bennett, Janet Schmidly, Alden Burn Hargis, Mary Fallin
