Mountain Emotion

A cutting-edge ventriloquist,
One of some renown,
Had his dummy hurling insults
In a West Virginia town.

As hillbilly stereotypes flew
Down from the nightclub stage,
The performer was ill-prepared
For the man who charged in rage.

“Hold on,” said the frightened comic,
“It’s all just meant in fun.”
Said the man, “‘T’aint you I’m atter,
I jis’ wanna git that liddle ‘un.”
