Were you born on a freezing morning at winter's end?
Did you drop, cold and wet onto frigid Nevada soil?
Did you watch your first sunrise in the Idaho dawn?
Did you grow and thrive on lush Kansas plains?
Did you sweat underneath a broiling Texan sun?
Did you spend your last hours under a Montana moon?
Or did you bellow and kick amongst concrete and steel?
I looked at the little tag beside you for more information.
I turned it over.
But all it said was.....
"Sixty nine dollars and ninety nine cents"
