Subject: RE: They All Laughed (Gershwin)
I think the problem is the word "but" in the line. It should be "AND people from Missouri never incensed me."

I also think the word "incensed" is weak. He means that people from Missouri never discouraged him. However, he needed something to rhyme with "against."
