Mail: Hats off to the PawneeTell North Platte what you think

It's not a hotel, it's a hospital

Not a hospital, no, it's a home.

It's not a home anymore,

just another locked door,

one more historical piece of real-estate décor.

Hats-off to the Pawnee,

Railroad track as far as the eye can see,

Buffalo Bill still running the show,

Nowhere for poor children to go,

With no ticket, and no dough,

Just back into the rain and the snow…

It's not civilization,

it's a monopoly game,

Not a society, it's a crime and a shame,

With not one single person to blame,

Supply and demand doesn't have any family name

Hats off to the Pawnee

It's not a future, just a break with the past,

Every new morning as cold as the last,

After the broadcasters over-cast,

Bread on the waters for the second classed

Hats off to the Pawnee,

Nowhere for the poor children to go,

With no ticket, and no dough,

Just back into the rain and the snow

you know…
