Title The Country Druggist
Description THF. COUNTRY DRUGGIST Jewel King Larsen 465 South inn East St. George, UT S477n Professional Division Honorable Mention Poetry There was a drugstore in our town-- A wondrous nook. I loved to stand for hours Just to get a closer look At the druggist--an amazing man-- Who made Sundaes, splits and pills; Pulled teeth, lanced boils and treated all Our illnesses and spills. He had a walrus mustache, Plus an elegant goatee-- His head was bare and shiny-- Not a hair that you could see. He wore enormous glasses Riding on a bulbous nose With a face both blithe and genial And glowing like a rose. I sometimes had a penny, To him a penny s worth of goodies Meant a whole handful--or more. ¦Let us share a thought for those druggists of old, Who care for all folks in need; They were heroes without armour and steed. This poem is based on a real person whom I knew in Spring City. 34
