               The word unique best suits our Garrison:
               There never was nor will be such a one
               As he who hosts The Prairie Home Companion
               Heard from the mountain tops to the Grand Canyon,
               From sea to shining sea on NPR
               Each Saturday at home or in your car:
               Two hours of songs and skits and stories told
               In ways appealing to both young and old,
               Foremost of which is Keillor’s monologue, a
               New chapter of his long-continued saga
               Of Lake Wobegon, somewhere in Minnesota,
               Which but for him we’d care not an iota;
                    Instead, we listen, amiably enthralled
                    As, week by week, more stories are installed.
