Man who believes television
is the mouthpiece of the devil,
seeks female with similar views.
Attention all ladies who like
biscuits: man has gristmill
and two or three acres of wheat.
Are you a woman cast out from society?
Man with thirty-seven acres
and big muscles can provide refuge.
Would like to find sober woman (beer okay),
interested in pick-up trucks, old-time
Gospel music, buffalo trails.
Grown man who likes red dogs
and skipping rocks, hoping against
hope some woman likes same.
Man who lives several hundred
years in the past would like to find
woman zealous for spinning wheels.
Eccentric (?) gentleman (negotiable)—
tinker/farmer searching the heavens
for the true spark of love (breast-size unimportant). Please.
