Poetry of Kansas

Kansas Can.

Kansas can. Of course she can.
          Listen, man!
There is nothing under Heaven
To be done, if she would do it,
          But she can.
Kansas can, you know she can.
          If she plan,
No disaster can discourage,
And the world will come to help her--
          Kansas can.
