Comic Saluki George
by Nevada Kerr

Comic Saluki George
Drives a convertible
Lives in a kennel in Hurley
Thinks he's still in Hollywood

Raw bacon and chocolate syrup
Winter clothes in the summer heat
Seventy years old with a Swiss cheese brain
And one good eye for the girls

George got a deal
At Grant County Pawn
Three beds for twelve dogs
Who keep him up till dawn

The locals are fodder
For a situation comedy
An Antique Trash Road Show
Or The Mexican Mayberry

If he'd only learn
To keep his hands on the wheel
He might just make it
Back to prime time TV
