The Cowtown Bachelor
The Cowtown druggist is renown-
he pledges not settle to down,
the only use for tux and gown
is at a ball,
a formal fete that fills the town's
assembly hall.

This bachelor has splendid skill,
he kills the pain with just a pill.
A chemist with a working mill,
his life is great,
so full of promise and goodwill,
if left to fate.

The womenfolk still try to match
the pretty gals to such a catch,
forever plots they try to hatch,
to no avail,
a preacher they will soon dispatch
if they don't fail.

Terrif! Skillful & amusing. Old-timey as befits the little drugstore & mural. We have lots of those here--though our clapboards are a little rougher and the druggists not nearly as eligible!
