Salute To A Corpus Christi Doctor - Gordon Conwell Smith, M.D. Deceased
Corpus Christi - no switching station - a quiet town
Was an opposite leap from the Berkley years,
And the good doctor known there had a reputation
In the professional association as the only physican
Who would treat the poor. The phrase was: 'has an interest in.'
Someplace I suspect I have the silver dollar he gave me
With solid guidance about always having money
Which he had but had the wisdom not to worship.
A follower of Baghwan Raijneesh
His care for those of lessor furtune
Make suspect christian colleagues
In the stained glass encampments
That live just slightly beyond the country club.
This all helps 'corpus christi' to be a nice alliteration
For the host of us not reading latin
And long gone from the wonder
Of a warm breeze sailing town.
