Tonight We Take Parry Sound
We've seen the Crow Creeks, Loon Lakes and Red Rivers where legends of the wild rule.
I'm thinking there could be red rum boiling from the mouth of a moose, wait, a Lightfoot moose, where Algonquin frees the stars loose and card games fugitive geese win and lose see nothing beat an ace except a joker or a deuce.
We left a buffet of rain behind, the one that drenched area codes and clever motel signs, with a hint of good riddance and spring pine. Breaker breaker one nine, left signal me once and I will thank you with a double hazard flash in our dust as I crank "Alberta Bound", as we take Parry Sound.
