In the darkling Denver Airport
In the land of high security
Comes the man from Pocatellow,
Comes the booming, noxious fellow
Comes the man of high degree
By the name of Rapparree.
In the land of Great Jetliners
He has traveled from his wigwam
From his home of buried freezers
From the town of Great Libraries
Where the books roll out like thunder
From the shelves and from the trolleys,
Comes the wanderer, Chief Librarian
Comes the long-retired Master!
Man of Booques, an antiquarian
Deeper, sharper, brighter, faster
Than the young men of Security.
Smarter than the DHS men
Clever as the black snake's mother
Is the Booke Manne, Rapparee.
Manne of Learning and Degree.
In the Denver Airport waiting
Watching with his keen eyes shining
Far away from Pocatello
From the Lande of Troubling Waters,
On the loose upon the nation,
Free from winos, children whining,
Now retired, Rapparee.
Mighty Traveler! Long-Miles-Eater!
Flies the skies in great jetliners
Passes through the grimmest checkpoint
Boards the aircraft with a saunter!
None can stop him from his travels
None can make him miss connection!
None his calm can e'er unravel
None can change his sure direction.
To the land of Far Milwaukee!
To the glades of Indiana!
To his mother, to his father,
Where the Great Missouri waters
Travel onward toward the sea
Comes the Booque Man, Rapparree!
