Small in stature, sound and keen
A happy zest, a giant dream.
A man of vision, a gift to speak
Onward to victory, inspite of defeat.
Serving his country, at home and away
With honor and dignity all of his days.
This bugtussel man of modest means
No gas in his car, no cash in his jeans,
He rose to the top and gained esteem.
From his friends the farmers to Kings and Queens.
He’s glad to be back from Washingtons fray
Back to McAlester, home to stay.
Back with his friends at the local café
It’s ”Hello Carl, how are you today?”
Inner happiness is a quality of spirit that radiates from within. The unspoken message that brings respect and trust is present. The self-confidence that shines through this inner happiness is like a magnet.
I knew this man who truly possessed these qualities, a true visual of the American dream. He wasn’t a fame seeker, just a real person who made a difference in Oklahoma, Carl Albert, Speaker of the House.
