A Viking wind brought him over here–
Seeking adventure and something new.
A beat from the Heartland made him stay,
And life took on a different hue.
Knowledge bloomed in the Garden State,
With all the work that school demands.
Then the Land of Lincoln called again,
And placed him in Illini’s hands.
The Great Lakes State nearly flooded his mind,
With all things just and fair;
But in the Free State he found relief,
Soon after being tested there.
A bite of the Big Apple suited his taste–
It was busy, big and fun.
But, Charm City was tempting him,
And in the end it won.
